The Graphic Design and Print program is designed for any student with an interest in the digital arts. Students in the first year of the program develop a strong design foundation using industry-standard Adobe programs. During the first year of the program, students will have the opportunity to make T-shirts, buttons, car decals, posters and custom screen printed products while gaining the necessary skills to stand out in a post secondary program or jump right into industry opportunity.

Second year students will focus on the skills needed to create a web presence. These students will also have the opportunity to work for real clients who need design work completed. Students will leave the second year of the program with a portfolio, website and professional experience to start a career in design.

Students may enroll at any time.
