The Graphic Design program in the Communication Department at EC prepares students to be Christian communicators in learning, working, and serving with their minds, hearts, and spirits throughout college and life.
Graphic Design incorporates information, technology, and community. Students learn foundational skills, problem-solving using design-thinking, creating successful designs for clients and human-centered design processes.
In the senior project course, students showcase their knowledge and skills acquired through the graphic design curriculum. Aside from completing 16 hours of core communication courses, students who choose the graphic design major are prepared for graduate school or entry-level positions in a variety of career choices, including Graphic Design, Marketing, Advertising, Digital Illustration etc.
Graphic Design graduates value and practice ethical use of media and respect for others. Utilizing their ability to adapt to various audiences in different settings and purposes, our graduates are able to speak clearly the intended message. Relying on creativity and technology, their ability to work effectively in groups or independently to solve problems is essential in today’s workplace and as life-long learners.
