Grounded in a strong tradition of VCA studio-based visual art practice, the Graphic Design major integrates design theory, digital and analogue approaches, and modern industry practices to develop industry-ready graduates. Students work toward completion of a design portfolio, which can be used as a foundation for commencing a graphic design-based career or further study.
The Graphic Design major will provide you with practical and conceptual skills to undertake professional graphic design work.
