The focus of your graduate work in the Graphic Design Track may include design theory, process, and methods related to design practice and research. Potential areas of study include multicultural communication, visual representation of information, human interaction with designed objects, social and cultural implications of design, color systems and perception, design history, design education, and interactive design.

The Graduate Program of Design is a multidisciplinary program comprised of four formal Tracks. One of these tracks is Graphic Design, which also includes an emphasis in Interactive Design. The track in Graphic Design focuses on design theory, process, and methods related to design practice and research. Potential areas of study include multicultural communication, visual representation of information, human interaction with designed objects, social and cultural implications of design, color systems and perception, design history, and design education. Students and faculty collaboratively develop designed objects and information resources that will enhance people’s lives. The emphasis in Interactive Design provides students with experience in designing for the electronic environment. The program integrates theory with practice in the application of emergent and established technologies to digital design solutions. Students complete a creative thesis.
