Graphic Design (Arizona State University)
A graphic design BSD from Arizona State University opens up a wide variety of job opportunities for graduates. This four-year program teaches students to design how information is communicated. Participants must take a total of 120 credit hours, some of which are general university requirements, but most of which are part of the graphic design curriculum.
Graphic design requires many different courses, ranging from art history to typography to composition. The curriculum focuses strongly on visual communication through technology. All students who wish to complete the program are required to do an internship, typically during the summer before the final year. Although this is usually done off campus, it is still supervised by a faculty member.
The goal of this program is to encourage students to develop innovative ideas through planning, research, analysis and collaboration. Participants are pushed to find creative, sustainable solutions to real-world design problems, including ecological concerns.
ASU's academic programs are spread across campuses in the Phoenix Metropolitan Area; however, unlike most multi-campus institutions, the campuses of ASU are all individually different- each has its own distinct function to fulfill in line with the university's mission.Read more About this school
