When I first stepped on campus I honestly felt like it was home. People were so nice to me. They opened doors for me. They're all smiling. When I saw the students they were all accepting of each other, asking each other questions. And they made me actually feel like I was a Curry student even though they knew I was still a high school student.

Graphic Design Curriculum

The graphic design major is structured to teach visual, intellectual, conceptual and technical skills providing you with the ability to articulate message, purpose and meaning through the language of the discipline. The curriculum covers a wide variety of media, including print, motion and interactive. Working with a diverse set of media will prepare you with the visual and technical skills needed for professional practice.

Additionally, we have a dedicated Mac lab for the major that is continuously upgraded with industry specific software, such as the Adobe Creative Suite. We also have an Epson wide-format printer that prints up to 24", allowing students to produce large format printed works.

Graphic Design majors should follow the Recommended Sequence of Study, a semester-by-semester guide. The sequence places the student into courses that help to identify strengths and weaknesses early in the program. This progression fosters self-direction and discipline in advanced courses.

Meet Tyler Collins '14 - Graphic Design

"During my four years as a graphic design major here at Curry, I've built up quite a portfolio.  I put a lot of time and effort into it, and I think it's really paid off," says Graphic Design major, Tyler Collins.
