A Minor in Graphic Design is suggested for any student whose future endeavors may involve the creation or implementation of visual communications. The graphic design minor would complement a major in business, marketing, finance, computer science, criminal justice, communication arts (television, journalism, etc.), natural sciences and psychology.

Effectively producing a traditional printed report, a Powerpoint presentation or a web site requires more than technology.  The computer provides the technique, but the educated and imaginative organization of elements into arresting and compelling communication requires the skills of a trained designer.

Required Courses (12 Credits)

ART 218 Graphic Design I  
ART 228 History of Graphic Design   
ART 227 Computer Graphics I  
ART 328 Typography  

Select two courses from the following: (6 Credits)

ART 322 Graphic Design II  
ART 327 Computer Graphics II  
ART 323 Art Direction  
ART 335 Web Design I  
ART 400 Web Design II  

There are 18 credits required for a minor in graphic design.  It is highly recommended that the student consult a faculty member in the arts to help plan a course of study.
