Mission Statement

To develop dedicated, practical problem solving people for the printing, publishing, imaging, packaging and allied industries.


The numerous graphic communications industries encompass areas such as graphic design, distribution, technology, printing, packaging, marketing and web design/development.

The Department of Graphic Communications’ philosophy centers on a unique concept of hands-on learning. Students experience the equipment, theories, and necessary problem solving found throughout the diverse industries. 

Our graduates are very successful in a variety of professions within the realm of graphic communications. This is due to the department's outstanding faculty, curriculum, and the methods employed in our facilities. Each student is required to work two internships offering a wide range of experiences and the opportunity to build industry contacts for future employment. 

As a student in Graphic Communications you will develop both technical and creative abilities through a comprehensive and dynamic curriculum to become a successful professional in a technology driven and dynamic multi-billion-dollar industry.
