Advanced students often find design internships with area advertising agencies and freelance opportunities both on and off campus.

The graphic design minor offers you a choice of business courses in entrepreneurship, marketing and advertising, giving you essential skills to succeed in the design workplace. Courses in typography, marketing and web design will expand the possibilities for your future job prospects. By the time you graduate, you’ll have a unique and professional portfolio to show both employers and clients.
