Computer Graphics Technology Junior/Senior Option

The Computer Graphics Technology program is a comprehensive curriculum that merges art and technology into communication and commerce tools for businesses. This program helps students acquire the necessary skills to succeed in the graphics industry using a unique combination of real-life projects, an on-the-job atmosphere, and lab instruction. 

This program will prepare students for a wide range of services in this creative field. This program teaches print design mediums (screen printing, advertisements, packaging, and publications) as well as electronic design mediums (web, video, motion graphics, introductory 3D design) to meet the growing demand of this field. Students learn fundamentals such as drawing and basic composition, photography, storyboarding, and typography to develop their own creative style. Working with Adobe Creative Suite and other industry-standard software gives students the technical skills and experience they need to be viable candidates in a rapidly growing and competitive industry. 

Students graduate with a portfolio developed specifically for their field of interest as well as learn job search techniques, participate in mock interviews, and learn to develop strategies in order to continue to build their professionalism post-graduation.
