Founded in 1946, the department has an outstanding 50+ year record of preparing men and women for creative careers in advertising, graphic design and communications media. It offers two degree programs in advertising design: a two-year lower-division program leading to the associate in applied science (AAS) in art and advertising design and a four-year program leading to the bachelor of technology (BTech) degree in communication design.
The department also offers certificate, AAS and BTech degree programs in graphic arts. For the convenience of those employed in the advertising design industry or elsewhere, the department makes courses available during day and evening hours on either a full- or part-time basis.
