Dunwoody’s approach to graphic design combines design theory with hands-on projects for an associate’s degree that produces graduates who are ready to work on print, digital, display and packaging projects from day one. Our graphic design studio and state-of-the-art printing and packaging lab means students can have a hand in every aspect of their projects–from conception to completion. In just two years, students obtain the real-world knowledge that employers have come to value in Dunwoody design graduates.
Dunwoody’s Graphic Design program features:
– Small class sizes, which allow our students ample time with both the instructors and the design and production equipment.
– Instruction on a Mac OSX system using the Adobe Creative Suite, giving students experience with industry standard tools and software
