This program prepares students for creative careers in web design, multimedia communications, graphic design and other related areas. During the two-year program, students develop professional-level skills in Adobe software applications. They learn to apply design processes and design theory in order to improve the quality and consistency of their work.
In addition to digital output, the classroom lab provides specialty printing experiences including wide format poster and banner printing, dye-sublimation printing on metal, ceramics and textiles as well as t-shirt transfer printing.
Students demonstrate their technical abilities through the Adobe Certified Expert Program. In a two-year period, it is possible for students to earn up to five industry-recognized certifications. This combined with work samples provides students with the opportunity to graduate with an impressive portfolio.
For real-world experience, students participate in a variety of work-based learning activities designed to provide professional-level practice including exposure to the expectations they will encounter in their future employment.
