The visual communication-graphic design degree prepares students for a variety of positions utilizing computer graphics and imaging skills. Graduates are prepared to produce public relations materials including print, video, and electronic media. Graduates may transfer as juniors to complete a bachelor’s degree in visual communications.
Opportunities within this field are expected to grow due to the emphasis on visual appeal in product design, advertising, marketing, web design and television. Willingness to relocate, however, may be an important factor since many of the opportunities will be in larger metropolitan areas.
