The graphic design minor begins with a foundation in basic design. Further study is in design-specific software currently used in the graphic design profession. It culminates with an advanced course, Typography and Production, that pulls together all of the technical and aesthetic skills that have been taught in previous requirements.
Our state-of-the-art computer facilities meet the demands of changing technology. We have a Macintosh computer lab dedicated solely to courses in the major; software and hardware are continuously updated. In addition, students are able to print their work on an Epson wide-format printer that prints up to 24." This allows for students to produce printed work on a professional level.
The graphic design minor gives an added perspective to majors in information technology and communication.

'Senior 7: Off the Grid' represents the work of seven students working in a variety of media: artists' books, ceramics, digital art, design, photography, and printmaking. The exhibit is the culmination of four years of study and demonstrates their conceptual and creative growth.
"During my four years as a graphic design major at Curry, I built up quite a portfolio. I put a lot of time and effort into it and I think it really paid off." - Tyler Collins '14, Jr. Graphic Designer at Gupta Media
