»Minor in Graphic Design

A minor in graphic design will supplement majors from business, marketing, advertising and public relations and other fields of transactional practices. The minor in graphic design provides the necessary skill set needed in visual communication and the tools to contribute and work with information/marketing campaigns and creative professionals. A graphic design minor will have positional advantages and opportunities including strategic planning and full involvement in the creative process and opportunities. Interdisciplinary work courses in visual literacy will help students develop exceptional skills and the ability to verbalize creative ideas on a variety of platforms.
