The Graphics Technology program offers a 48 credit technical certificate that is designed to give students basic knowledge of the graphics industry. Students will learn the basics of graphic design software (CS4 Adobe InDesign, Adobe Illustrator & Adobe Photoshop) through lecture, hands-on activities, projects and internship opportunities. Additional focus on digital photography and a secondary focus on printing will also be included.
The students are instructed on how graphics, photography and print work together to provide the products that are required for entry level employment in the graphics industry.
Full time students can complete the program in one year. Part time, including high school students, can complete the program in four semesters. Students who successfully complete the program may be eligible to complete their associate's degree at Washburn University.
