Graphic and Multimedia Design (GMMD) is a fast paced technology and culture driven major for creative students interested in pursuing a four-year degree. Students can also expect to learn about podcasts, blogs, and other new forms of communication.


This program is designed for students who want to be creative and who want to maximize their marketability after graduation.

Assistant Professor and GMMD Curriculum Coordinator


New Ideas, New Technology

The program integrates courses from the Information Technology program, like web development, and blends it with the custom and newly created courses. Film is rapidly becoming a staple form of communication. GMMD challenges the status quo with specialized film courses and theater production courses.

Two GMMD students view and critique student work.

Write Your Own Future

This program is writing intensive. Students should be prepared to take English and communications courses during the first three years of the program.

Real-World Opportunities

The final semester of this program consists of either an on-the-job internship or a project based individual or team product launch project. Students can opt to get a leg up on their post graduate careers or can opt to create a totally new product for unveiling.
