Bachelor of Arts in Computer Graphic Design

We live in a highly visual world, and graphic designers are the artists who create that world. Visual media is critical to effective communication, especially in the realms of publishing, marketing and public relations. Graphic designers know better than anyone the importance of presentation. No matter how compelling the content, your message runs the risk of being overlooked if it is not presented in a unique, engaging way. But how do you stand out in this competitive field? Begin by pursuing a graphic design degree in Louisville, KY from Sullivan University - you'll be able to build a marketable skill set and discover how to give your work an edge.

By the time you graduate from Sullivan University, you will have built up an impressive portfolio of work, from print layouts to animations to web pages to 3-D modeling. You will learn how to master industry-standard graphic design software, specifically the Adobe Creative Suite that includes InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. Your graphic design degree will also help you gain an in-depth understanding of important design concepts such as color theory, page layout, proportions, copy writing and more.
