The SASD Graphic Design Program offer two four-year B.F.A. programs with two different curricula within graphic design: traditional Graphic Design, and New Media. Each curriculum is a B.F.A. (Bachelor of Fine Arts) of 125 credits minimum.
The two curricula consist of integrated, inter-disciplinary sequences designed to strengthen communication skills, promote teamwork and individuality, stimulate creativity, and provide both traditional and technological skills for the career-oriented student.
Graphic Design students learn techniques and processes to build their portfolios with works prepared for both traditional print and new media including typography, branding and identity, promotional campaigns, publications, motion, and interactive.
New Media students shift focus away from paper and traditional media to the digital aspects of design, with emphasis on motion, video, electronic publishing, interactive processes, and Web-based design.
Typefaces, logos, and websites, drawing, painting, and video, Web: all part of the SASD Graphic Design Programs. The programs emphasize process, real-world community projects, and skill-building toward a final self-directed project in the senior year.
SASD is an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), the governing body of undergraduate and graduate art and design schools.
