Graphic Design Certificate

The five Graphic Design Certificates are designed for students to be introduced, enhanced and /or add further graphic design expertise to their skill sets. The Certificate provides flexibility for students to choose and develop their skills for specific graphic arts industry opportunities.

Not all courses are offered every semester; to stay on track, students are advised to follow suggested schedule.

*Students should review the course prerequisite(s) before enrollment to insure program completion within the financial aid guideline time frame.

Check the college catalog for course corequisites and/or prerequisites or check with a counselor.

Upon successful completion of the Introductory Graphic Design, Intermediate Graphic Design, Advanced Graphic Design, Graphic Design-Web/Social Media, or Entrepreneurial Graphic Design curriculum with a grade point average of 2.00 (C) or higher, the student is awarded a Certificate. Students also have the option to enter the two-year Graphic Design Associate in Applied Science Degree program or transfer to a four-year institution which will necessitate a slightly different curriculum.
