Program Total Credits: 123

Graphic Design students and faculty are engaged in a collaborative process of exploring the “New” as it emerges. For graphic design, the New has meant specifically the transformation of media, which affects how messages are created and transmitted, and how the intersection of design, media, and culture are understood. Throughout the three years of major concentration, problems in graphic communication are combined with exploratory and experimental studies in drawing, color, photography, typography, and emerging technologies. The curriculum is supplemented by special lecture programs, workshops with invited design firms, and on-site studio seminars in selected design offices and studios, paper and printing plants, museums and libraries, and with film and computer graphic producers.
