This major offers the student a cutting edge, career-oriented education to prepare him or her for graduate school or professional work. A computer graphic design major is afforded the kind of expressive freedom that is necessary to maintain a fresh understanding of current trends occurring in this field. The technical skills needed for computer graphics are taught in a progressive way, which coincides with each studentís expressive development.

Majors in Computer Graphic Design must earn a grade of "C" or better in all courses in the program.  Courses in which a major has earned less than a grade of "C" must be repeated.
