Student Testimonial

“I enjoy the small classroom learning environment, it really feels like I’m learning and my professor is able to reach everyone in need. All of my professors have worked in the graphic design field before teaching. I’m hoping to become a video game designer.”

-Lianna Pinero, Graphic Design Student

Courses are taught in modern studio/lab environments at our Woodland Park campus, encouraging entrepreneurial teamwork and collaboration. Critical thinking, conceptual problem solving, and creativity are emphasized as students learn about:

  • Motion graphics and animation
  • Digital photography and imaging
  • Illustration
  • Filmmaking
  • Game design
  • Packaging
  • Advertising
  • Publication design

Instructors are chosen for both academic excellence and relevant professional experience. They share firsthand occupational knowledge that can help prepare students to enter the job market. Portfolios, internships, and capstone projects are completed prior to graduation, as students work closely with the Career Services Department to secure future employment.

Students have the opportunity to interact with Interior Design students, exhibit their work in the Gallery at Woodland Park, and contribute to the department website. Students may also participate in field trips, attend guest lectures and opening receptions, and network with members of the professional design, art, and film community.
