Visual Communications Program

Visual Communication (VC) refers to the creative process that combines the visual arts and technology in order to communicate ideas. It begins with a message that, in the hands of a talented designer, is transformed into a form of a visual message that transcends words and pictures.

Students will learn about various forms of visual media and industries, including still images, moving images, animation, motion graphics, and other forms of both traditional and new media, such as graphic design, and website design.
