We educate and prepare students to be proactive leaders in the ever-changing design profession. In line with La Roche College’s mission, we place the utmost importance on an education that will ultimately empower our graduates to effectively use design as a means to shape culture and affect positive change in society.


Graphic designers create communications that educate, advocate and entertain. From the small hang tag on a piece of clothing to the oversized billboards in Times Square, from the books we read as children to the textbooks we learned from in school; from the magazines we read to the web sites we visit and the films and videos we watch – Graphic Design is literally everywhere.

For almost 40 years, La Roche College graphic design students have gone on to become professional graphic designers, art directors, illustrators, interactive designers and publication designers. They work at firms such as Apple, American Eagle, Brunner Advertising, Lockerz, and MAYA Design creating logos and branding, designing packaging and brochures, developing ad campaigns and producing TV, web and print ads.

Our current faculty, many of whom are practicing graphic designers or exhibiting artists, are able to bring their real-world knowledge back into the classroom to facilitate the best learning opportunities for our students. Our low faculty-to-student ratio allows students to connect with their professors on a level that allows them to grow and find their individual creative voice.
