Graphic Design is a classic design program relying on a base of strong fine and liberal arts. This base pairs with skills from various other fields of study.
Although the program is based in the Art & Design Department, students will also take courses in the Computer Science, Communication Studies, Marketing and Mass Communication departments.
Although not required, students have the option to take part in one of the department's Faculty-led Travel Studies.
What to Expect
Students will build on a foundation of design theory, studio arts and art history. They will then work with professional design software and technology. This helps them to study modern design practices and up-and-coming visual communication media.
During their final semester, students showcase diverse works of art in the Senior Design Exhibition. This exhibit is the peak of their undergraduate education.
Students should declare Graphic Design as their major upon admission to WSU.
