Overview

The Graphic Design advanced diploma program has an exceptional reputation for graduating talented designers and is recognized as one of the top design programs in the province. Many students win regional, national, and international awards for their design work including RGD (Association of Registered Graphic Designers), ADCC (Advertising and Design Club of Canada), Applied Arts, Print, HOW, and many others.

In this program you will have access to up-to-date technologies, including software, hardware, photography studio, and printing facilities. The program has limited enrolment and small class sizes to ensure students’ access to award-winning faculty with professional experience in the field of graphic design, packaging, photography and illustration. You will engage in a collaborative environment with dynamic studio projects for both in-class and live clients. As well, the program offers educational and socially engaging field trips, guest speakers, and multiple collaborations with other students and outside organizations. The program supports student membership in the Association of Registered Graphic Designers (RGD) and provides access to the Design Thinkers Conference. RGD members have access to a variety of resources on the RGD website.

The program employs a project-based learning approach that addresses design, digital content creation, communication, inter-personal, mechanical, technical and enhanced employability skills. In the third year, you will participate in field placements to reinforce professional industry standards.
