Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design

The Bachelor of Fine Arts is a professional degree program that provides a more intensive course of study than a traditional Bachelor of Arts. Upon graduation, students will be prepared for entry into the professional design industry or graduate school, having acquired a strong foundation in studio art, art history and graphic design. Faculty members work closely with students to develop their technical and conceptual abilities, and to guide them through developing a professional portfolio. They also serve as an entry point to the industry, and connect students to internships and the design community through organizations like the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA).
