Program List

certificate

Northwestern’s Graphic Design Program aims to provide the student with entry level graphic design skills. All courses are applicable to an Associate Degree. Northwestern’s graphic design students learn the principles and processes of graphic design while working in up-to-date computer graphics and photography studios. They develop a portfolio of original works of graphic design, computer illustration and desktop publishing.

In addition to their 12-credit certificate program, many students opt to take Graphic Design IV: Computer Animation. This course introduces the student to the basics of animation, multimedia, three dimensional modeling, and presentation soft-ware.
