The Media Arts: Graphic Design Certificate of Achievement prepares students for careers in the visual media industry. The curriculum is designed to help students build strong design foundations, visual literacy skills, and become proﬁcient in the technical skills required of a visual designer. Coursework leads to entry-level employment in the region. Electives provide for emphasis in speciﬁc areas of interest, including illustration, graphic design, digital publishing, web design, and 3-D design. Capstone courses offer a unique opportunity to create a collective portfolio of student work.
The anticipation of 6 completions annually is based on a 3 year average of AS degree in Graphic Design completions. This projection is probably low, since many of our students are looking to build workforce skills, not necessarily transfer.
The Media Arts: Graphic Design Certificate of Achievement is a CTE program that is designed for students who desire specific training to meet an immediate occupational or personal goal, or for promotion or lateral transfer within their existing field of employment. To qualify for a Certificate of Achievement, a student must complete all courses required for the Certificate with an overall grade point average of 2.0. It is designed to support students who want to develop the creative and technical skills required for graphic design professionals. This Certificate also supports students interested in completing an AS in Graphic Design because it is directly aligned with the required coursework in that program.
A major of 36 units is required for this Certificate of Achievement.
