An interview with the program coordinator is required for acceptance into the Graphic Design Certificate program. Successful completion of the certificate will include the creation of a portfolio, which is required for transfer to upper-level studies leading to a BA or BFA degree and for entry-level graphics positions. The portfolio, along with the experiences gained in completing the curriculum, prepares the student for beginning a career in graphic design printing and publishing.

 The portfolio will include samples of graphic design basics, such as:

  • Logo development
  • Layout
  • Advertising design
  • Black & white graphics
  • Color graphics
  • Traditional layout
  • Computer layout
  • Computer imaging
  • Computer illustration
