BFA in Graphic Design

This program emphasizes critical thinking through the exploration of digital and print media. As part of the Graphic Design sequence, students complete a 10–12 credit Cooperative Education summer internship.

Admittance to the BFA program is based on a portfolio review during your Junior year and grade-point average in applicable courses. Prerequisite courses can be taken before entrance into the program, and Freshman and Sophomores are recommended to enroll in the BA Graphic Design Track program so they can be assigned an advisor and discuss program options.
