Prior to selecting a major in Graphic and Digital Design, students should consult with their advisor and the chair of Art and Art History program. All students who decide to major in Graphic and Digital Design should officially elect a faculty member from the department as their formal advisor and consult with that faculty member prior to course registration each semester.
This major is appropriate for students seeking a career in graphic design, web development, art direction, and multimedia artists. It is also appropriate for students planning to pursue graduate studies in these areas to consider a second major in art history or fine arts.

Please note that ARTZ 111 is offered in the fall semester only. ARTZ 496 Apex Studio is to be taken in the spring semester of the year the student graduates. To enroll in ARTZ 496 students are required to fill out a “Permission to Register for Special Coursework” form.

The graphic design and design arts major is only available through the Springfield campus.
