    Career, Degree (AS)


    The Graphic Design-Print Degree prepares students for a dynamic career in the graphic design or marketing communications fields. This specialized program expands traditional business and marketing offerings with the inclusion of a broad range of graphic design courses that serve to enhance a student's creativity and preparation for the job market. Course work prepares students for entry-level employment in various aspects of the marketing communications field including advertising or promotion, as well as for positions in print-focused graphic design or electronic publishing. As part of the program, students produce a portfolio of their designs and can gain valuable work experience with hands-on work experience through Cooperative Education and Internships which integrate classroom study with a supervised work experience.

    Simultaneous awarding of Certificate and Degree policy: Certificates whose coursework is embedded in an Associate's degree program will not be awarded simultaneously in the same term as the degree is awarded; i.e. Graphic Design-Print(GDD) and Graphic Design Certificate(GDC).
