Graphic Design

Code: F_AAS_MMT1,MMP Campus: Boulder County and Westminster

This area of concentration prepares students for entry-level positions in print as digital artists, graphic artists, and graphic designers. Students develop a high level of technical proficiency through the use of multiple software programs for creating, composing, and displaying designs for print and other media presentation.

Core courses focus on assisting students in learning industry standard software in illustration, photo manipulation, 3D modeling, and pre-press skills needed for print. Program electives allow students to focus on specific design and software skills.

Students work independently, as well as in collaborative groups in the design and implementation of mixed media presentations and applications.

This degree requires the extensive use of a computer for prolonged periods of time during class and lab, analytical and creative abilities, and basic computer skills to begin the program.

Assessment testing is required for all students. Students who are reading at the college level and place into CCR 093 or above and MAT 050 or above may begin this program of study. A grade of "C" or above must be earned for each course required for the degree.
