Prepare for a career in graphic design by learning how to communicate visually.

You'll develop your talents and skills and achieve a high degree of professional competence, while pursuing your own creative goals. The BFA in Graphic Design program will prepare you for the many career opportunities available in design practice.

The BFA is a professional degree with concentrated areas of specialization, so you will take more art courses than you would in a BA program. At UMass Dartmouth, you also have the advantages of a university education where you can diversify your studies and expand your career opportunities.
