This major includes digital imaging, web, multimedia authoring, animation and illustration. Communications and business courses are integrated into the curriculum and further reflect the diverse and interdisciplinary nature of the Visual Communications and Design major. The Design Center is the technology hub for many of these courses and is also structured to provide students varied opportunities to work with campus and off-campus clients for credit.
