    Graphic Design Minor


    This minor is designed for non-art majors and will enhance students’ ability in any major or discipline that requires them to describe concepts and ideas visually. For example, effectively producing a traditional printed report, a PowerPoint presentation or a web site. Students will gain in-depth experience using industry-standard computer software while acquiring an understanding of graphic design principles and formats. This minor is a great complement to a major in business, marketing, finance, computer science, criminal justice, communication arts (television, journalism, etc.), natural sciences and psychology.
