Graphic Communications is a two-year, project-based program for students who want to develop 21st century career and communication skills in graphic design and artistry. Macintosh computers and Adobe software are featured, as are projects in the form of multimedia advertisements, logo design, business cards, computer illustrations, digital imaging, multimedia and web design. Field visitations to advertising agencies, printing companies and colleges are embedded into the program.
Dual credit courses are an integral component of the program and are offered through Tompkins Cortland Community College, where students may earn up to six college credits in Art and Communications. Prior to completion, students are also provided with internship experiences and the opportunity to earn a Career and Technical Endorsement on their diploma by successfully passing an industry-standard technical assessment.
