Students use these tools to create high quality layouts and designs for print and web.

This program provides students with a solid foundation for career growth. Graduates are qualified for many entry-level positions, including production or computer artists at newspapers or print media production houses, advertising agencies or television stations. Areas of study include Adobe Photoshop image design and editing, vector graphics using Adobe Illustrator, website design, graphic design and layout using Adobe InDesign and more.
