Combine elective classes across digital design fields with a foundation in graphic design to enter one of the multidisciplinary roles today’s designers occupy. Grow your network while building a professional design portfolio. This program features small, interactive classes, real-time instruction (either in-person, or on Zoom), free access to software for remote use, and free access to designated campus labs.
