Associate Degree Program Features
Learn Professional Practices
Designed for high school graduates and adult learners, the program offers a strong foundation in visual design and a working knowledge of contemporary software and production techniques. Throughout the program, emphasis is placed on a professional workflow that involves research, practice, and critique.
Develop Deeper Career Skills
A general education curriculum develops students’ proficiency in critical thinking and written communication and a foundation in psychology, marketing, business, computer technology, writing, and art history. Students are expected to apply the approaches and ideas acquired in the general education program in their art/design coursework.

The program will focus on helping students build a body of work through expert faculty mentoring and critique. Small classes combine personal attention with peer-to-peer interaction, and second-year students gain essential career preparation training in a capstone project and portfolio review.
