GDMA Program Overview

Welcome to the Graphic Design for Marketing (GDMA) degree program

Want to feed your creativity and fuel your passion for graphic design? Come join our small community of talented students and immerse yourself in our innovative, studio-based program. 

Here, you’ll develop the critical thinking, industry-relevant tools, and business and marketing savvy you need to future-ready your design career. And since we keep our class sizes small, you’ll get to know your faculty, and meet lifelong friends and future collaborators.

By the end of four years, you’ll have the conceptual and technical skills to tackle real-world design challenges, the confidence and negotiation skills to work with clients and team members, the inspiration to continue exploring your creative future, and the portfolio and practicum experience that will get you hired.
