Art and Design, B.S. - Graphic Design

Graphic design is the process of visual creative problem-solving with a focus on communication. Graphic designers utilize a wide range of media and visual assets such as typography, photography, and other imagery as part of their creative problem- solving practice. The primary focus of the graphic design program at SCSU is to prepare students for the creative industry, upon graduation. As students navigate the graphic design program at SCSU, they will explore a range of media and outputs, as they work on true-to-industry projects, navigate clients, and develop their professional skills and portfolio.

Typical projects a student can expect to explore as part of their graphic design coursework include: logo development, single-page layout design, multi-page document design, visual branding strategies, package design, emerging and social media applications, and design for screen-based media such as web site design, and mobile application design.
