Salt Lake City, Utah (PressExposure) April 23, 2012 -- Students interested in pursuing a graphic arts program can now choose between three exciting options at Stevens-Henager College.
In addition to a Bachelor's of Science in Graphic Arts degree, the college now offers students two more programs in the field of graphic design: a Bachelor of Science in Graphic Arts with an Information Design emphasis and a Bachelor of Science in Web Design & Development.
With the Department of Labor predicting keen competition for graphic design jobs over the next few years, it is not just advisable but essential for aspiring graphic designers to enroll for college degree programs that expose them to different design techniques and tools.
The BS degree in graphic arts is designed to provide graduates the design skills, computer knowledge, and business intelligence needed to pursue entry-level employment in a variety of settings. The degree program involves coursework such as Graphic Design, Layout Design, Web Design, Photoshop, Illustrator, Computer Fundamentals, Advertising Principles, Marketing Strategies, Entrepreneurship, etc.
Information design, which is actually a subset of graphic design, refers to the process of presenting complex data in a manner that is easier to understand and use.
The focus of the BS degree in Graphic Arts with Information Design emphasis is, therefore, to train graduates in creating and managing information design content by providing them advanced knowledge of graphic communication, typography, written communication, and computer technology.
The Web Design & Development degree is meant for individuals interested in working on both the front and back ends of web applications creation. Consequently, students enrolled in this program learn programming fundamentals and languages in addition to design principles.
Courses in this program include Web Programming, Mobile Applications Development, Java, Logic Structures, Database Administration, Web Page Design, Information Design, Typography, Flash Animation, Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.
All three programs last 36 months, but students have the option of finishing them in less-than-normal completion time at Stevens-Henager College. They can also choose to take classes online or complete their program on campus, depending on what fits best in their daily schedule.
