Key Features

Students of the Graphic Design program from Jackson State University work with teachers who are themselves professional practitioners to learn how to design for print, interaction, and experience design.

For students interested in professional design practice as a career, the department provides a thorough art and design foundation, including intensive drawing, classes in art history, and introductory experiences in various fine arts media. Once this core of foundation classes has been completed, students are intellectually and creatively prepared for the rigor of advanced study, which includes coursework in computer graphics, advertising art, and computer aided design.

The Department of Art has excellent computer labs with complete image generation, typography, and multimedia capabilities, using current industry standards in software and hardware, scanners, and printers.
