Bachelor of Arts (BA) - Graphic Design

Bachelor of Arts (BA) - Graphic Design

The School of Art, Art History & Design is pleased to offer Graphic Design as a major beginning in the fall of 2017

The BA in Graphic Design is a broad, liberal arts degree that is about one-third Graphic Design (and Foundations) and about two thirds other subjects, including Art/Design History, a minor and a foreign language. The purpose of this major is to allow students to combine the study of design with a second area of study. This can be done through the minor or by creating a dual matriculation degree with another field. Students will be encouraged to consider their career goals when selecting this secondary area.
