Courses in both two and three dimensional design are required in the core curriculum of the Bachelor of Fine Arts as prerequisites to concentration courses. These two beginning design courses along with core drawing courses provide an early foundation in art techniques and principles. A BFA with a concentration in Graphic Design prepares a student for a career as a design professional.

The program encompasses the development of computer skills, fluency in the language of visual design, presentation and self-promotion techniques that are invaluable to anyone working in the industry. A very successful feature of the Graphic Design program is a six credit hour internship with an approved advertising agency, printer, in house art dept. or other appropriate business. This 6 week internship provides a transition from classroom to workplace. Our graduates currently occupy positions throughout the southeast and across the country working as art directors, illustrators, production artists and account executives. Students entering this concentration are responsible for purchasing items necessary for their success in the field. As a student many hardware and software items are available for substantial savings please refer to the concentration requirements for more information.
