Design Certificate

At Parkside, art students work in new, well-equipped, spacious studios with faculty seriously committed to quality teaching as well as to production, exhibition, and publication in their own areas of professional specialization.

The design certificate provides basic training in how to create quality presentation and marketing materials. While this academic credential cannot compete with the skills acquired through the graphic design major, it does provide students with competitive tools that may enhance their career goals and employability.

As graphic design is a creative synthesis of both artistic and technological means to communicate ideas, students develop strategies for creative problem solving that relate to the numerous specialized fields of graphic design.
