Visual Communications

The Visual Communications area of emphasis will give you the skills you need to be a professional graphic designer. You will learn how to create high-quality, eye-catching products by applying advanced design principles. Courses will focus on two core software tools that will help you accomplish this goal: Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator.

Supplemental courses will teach you the practical and theoretical sides of visual design, such as colour theory, typographic history and the art of telling a story using characters and images.
