    The Graphic Design Certificate provides accelerated, focused training for students seeking entry-level employment in various aspects of print-focused graphics, including print and electronic publishing. Students learn how to expand their creativity and style, while creating computer-generated graphic designs for both electronic and print products. Students also gain valuable experience utilizing several computer software programs to generate their designs. Development of oral, written, and presentation skills are key goals of the coursework. As part of the program, students produce a portfolio of their designs.

    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).
