    The program prepares students for entry into the graphic design field as an entry level designer. Graphic designers develop images that persuade, inform and instruct. Students learn the skills to solve specific visual problems through practical work that covers the broad spectrum of visual communication in corporate, editorial and advertising design. The program of studies includes the fundamentals of design, typography, design concepts and digital technology in the first year. The second and third years provide the opportunity to apply these principles to a variety of design problems. Other areas of study include colour theory, drawing, packaging, photography, history of art and the history of graphic design along with editorial and corporate design. The sixth semester is spent off-campus as an intern at either a design studio or an in-house studio.
