The Graphic Design program at Drexel prepares students to inform, persuade, educate, and entertain through the creative use of word and image. Graphic Design students learn to conceptualize, design, and produce visual communication in a wide variety of media, including books, magazines, posters, ads, packaging, websites, interactive media, information systems, exhibition design, motion graphics and more. Students use this work to develop an expansive portfolio, an invaluable tool for our graduates as they seek future employment.
The curriculum provides a balance of traditional and technical artistic studies enhanced by general education coursework in the humanities and the physical and social sciences. Westphal College's Graphic Design students develop a sophisticated approach to creative problem solving and hone skills in typography, image generation, corporate identity, information graphics, three dimensional design, and motion graphics. Working in both two and three-dimensional projects, students utilize the latest electronic applications and emerging technologies to stay current with the industry.
Graphic Design students are widely sought for diverse co-op opportunities, and graduates are employed by top advertising agencies, design studios, corporate design departments and publishers.
