Graphic designers are visual storytellers. In Kean University’s BFA Graphic Design program, students learn to take their designs from concept to production for both print and digital. You will apply design principles in a variety of mediums, including web, UX, mobile, social, motion graphics, VR (virtual reality), AR (augmented reality), immersive experiences and more.
The program’s curriculum includes a liberal arts and visual design foundation, art and design history, and design theory. Build on your knowledge of design fundamentals with advanced courses in identity, branding, interactive, video, sound, motion graphics and emerging technologies. Students in Kean’s graphic design degree program gain practical experience through internships and hands-on collaborations with public and nonprofit partners.
All the professors at RBSD are accomplished designers in various fields, and most are published authors as well. They helped me prepare for the challenges I would face as a young designer in an intensely competitive field, and ultimately they have set me up for my success.
At Kean, we believe learning extends far beyond the walls of our classrooms and labs. That's why we encourage you to get involved in clubs and organizations, study abroad at our campus in China or elsewhere and pursue internships that will advance your career. Find out more.
