CURRICULUM GUIDE

 

Graphic Design

Associate in Applied Arts Degree

 

Curriculum Code: 0219  (Effective Fall 2004 - Summer 2009)

 

A graphic designer is an artist who creatively and effectively designs informational or promotional materials for publication and/or use in a variety of mass media situations.  Artistic skills related to producing effective visual information are essential for a graphic designer.  An understanding of the principles of typography, color theory, computer graphic applications, and pre-press techniques is necessary.  Graphic designers are employed by design studios, advertising agencies, printing companies, publishers, newspapers, sign companies, and businesses that generate their own publications.  Not all courses in this program transfer to all colleges.  Students planning to transfer should see an academic advisor or counselor before enrolling in any course.
