Why Study This Program?

The department of Art & Design's newest degree, a Bachelor of Design (B.Des.) in Interactive and Graphic Design, was created to keep students on the cusp of this constantly changing and exciting discipline. This program ensures that students are able to keep up with current trends and technological demands in the design industry. Our experienced faculty and state-of-the-art computer labs will prepare you to contribute and compete in the modern world of interactive and graphic design.

Students interested in pursuing graphic and interactive design can also pursue the discipline as a concentration within the Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree. This course of study allows you to explore graphic design while also gaining a broad understanding of the arts. 

“I develop, plan, tinker, organize and learn, but my official title is a designer at Godfrey in downtown Lancaster. In my position, my daily assignments range from traditional print ads to website development and everything in between. Outside of the office, my work with Ladies, Technically Speaking allows me to continue exploring my desire to learn, lead and ignite that aspiration in others. When I’m not knee-deep in all things design, I enjoy taking in all that downtown Lancaster has to offer and of course, spending time with my two cats.”
