Graphic Design Degree

Graphic design is the process of creating visual solutions for communication. Graphic designers use art and technology to design and visually communicate a message to a targeted audience. Walsh University's Graphic Design program works to prepare  students to pursue careers in visual communication design professions. Students learn the current technology used in design and develop creative problem solving abilities for real-world projects. Upon graduation, students will have completed a design portfolio.
