Graphic Design + Media Arts

Mount Marty College's graphic design + media arts program combines the arts and emerging technologies into a fresh course of study while maintaining a strong foundation in the liberal arts.

The graphic design + media arts program is built on the principle that the best designers and the best managers of designers have a well-rounded education not only in a variety of design (graphic design, web design, and motion design), but also in the liberal arts in general. Students in the program will experience these types of design and more, and then have the freedom and individual attention necessary to focus you Mount Marty College experience in the specific field to which you are attracted.

This broad approach allows students to experience a wide range of design opportunities to both enable undecided designers to find a type of design that fits them as well as preparing students to move on in their career as managers of designers. Students study graphic design, web design, and motion design, and have the freedom to define their portfolios, internships, and other experiences around the field they are interested in.

In keeping with our commitment to provide current technology to all our students, every full-time Mount Marty College student is issued a laptop computer. The use of laptops is integral in all instruction, but especially in the graphic design + media arts program. Students have access to up-to-date software for graphic design such as Illustrator, PhotoShop, AfterFX, InDesign, Dreamweaver, and Flash. Students have around-the-clock access to a studio space with additional computers, printers, scanners, digital cameras, audio equipment and high definition video cameras. On our wireless campus, students have the world at their fingertips.
