Program Details

Created with creatively driven students in mind, Gateway Technical College is currently offering an Associates in Graphic Communications degree program.   As companies begin to evolve and grow with technology, the need for graphic designers has grown along with it. The Bureau of Labor Statistics has predicted that this career field will see an 18 percent growth by 2018. Gateway seeks to help students grow a professional portfolio by incorporating real-life design and hands-on experience within the digital classroom.  With this entry-level education program and a developed portfolio, students have the opportunity to successfully enter into positions such as web design, production, corporate identity, marketing, advertising and social media management.  Many additional graphic design certifications require an associate’s degree in graphic digital media, like the one offered through this program.  This class is available in an online format but still gives students the opportunity to gain valuable networking connections with faculty and other design students that can help mold their future career.  Through message-board communication and direct webcam technology, students will interact with their peers and instructors for guidance and future opportunities. Students in the Wisconsin area may be eligible to participate in Gateway’s individually-driven internship program that works directly with Wisconsin-based businesses. Students should not only learn how to become technically proficient at design programs, but also how the commercial art and visual communication industry currently operates.

The curriculum consists of 68 core credit hours, usually completed within 2 years. Students will take classes such as: Web Page Design, Multimedia Survey, Digital Prepress Fundamentals, Advanced Illustration, Advanced Problems in Graphic Design, Applied Exit Strategies and Digital Photography. Students must pass all courses with a minimum grade point average of 2.00.
