About the Program:
The Advertising & Graphic Design Technology Program prepares you for staff positions and freelance assignments where you might design commercial packaging, print publications, book covers, annual reports, websites, advertisements, mobile apps, brands and identities, and more. Students are trained in the leading industry standard software and in conceptual thinking, ideation, and professional practices.
Hard work and personal commitment are expected of visual arts students, but the faculty also recognizes the value of enjoying the creative process. The AGDT faculty sponsors the KC Visual Arts Club which provides students with opportunities to meet and share in creative, social and educational activities outside the classroom. Club field trips are organized to visit design studios and advertising agencies in the region, to glimpse the work of professionals succeeding in the industry.
