About the Graphic Design Program
Design Your Career with the Stroke of a Pen and Click of a Mouse.
Graphic designers are multitalented content creators who produce visual concepts and experiences across many different industries. With graphic arts and design, the applications and career opportunities are endless. In this program, you will learn how to create wireframes and website design elements, motion graphics, magazines, corporate reports, advertisements, packaging, logotypes, brochures, and more.
Our graphic design program is comprehensive, and your projects will solve real-world problems using images, graphics, designs, and words. Learn about color theory, art, and design principles, and industry software, then apply those concepts in class and beyond. You will build a diverse portfolio that will help you secure work in-house for a company, brand or organization; at a design agency; or as a freelance graphic designer. Additional job roles include web designer, user experience (UX) designer, animator, and photographer.
With on-campus and fully online program options, SMC offers a format that works for you.
