Graphic designers shape our visual environment through the experimentation and use of typography, image, and form. As mediators of knowledge and experiences, graphic designers contribute to the formation and expression of complex societal ideas and values. Students at St. Edward’s University acquire the skills to critically investigate the context in which design is created and used as well as to explore history, theory, methods, and technology. The Graphic Design Program prepares students for continued studies through graduate programs in Design as well as providing a starting point for students wishing to enter the field.
Transfer or New College students are required to submit portfolios for review by Graphic Design department faculty before registering for courses where transfer credit for prerequisites has been given. See course descriptions for courses that apply.
