Creative professionals are valued employees in every organization. We prepare you for careers specifically in or related to the visual arts.

Graphic design students have many opportunities to display their artwork on campus and in the community. The Carlsten Art Gallery at the Noel Fine Arts Center displays students' artwork in the annual Juried Student Exhibition which takes place in the fall. The Juried Student Exhibition is judged by an outside professional and results in awards and scholarships given to outstanding students.
While in the program, there will be numerous opportunities to broaden your experience. All students are welcome to join our department student groups. Organizations meet on a regular basis and contribute actively to student life by sponsoring trips and special events and raising awareness of aesthetic issues.
