GRAPHIC DESIGN is the art of using design elements – typography, images and symbols – to convey information or ideas, making messages come alive.
About the Program
Our graphic design program is based on real-world applications and experience. Our first priority is to provide you instruction based on the needs of the professional world. Because our professors are plugged into this industry, they know what current trends and skills students should be learning.
YOU WILL LEARN
- work on projects for local companies
- present to real clients
- complete an in-depth design project as part of a marketing research project
Paired with an MNU student marketing team you’ll get first-hand experience with the relationship between designers and marketers. You will explore topics from a Christian worldview and learn how to use graphic design to benefit the business world in a positive way. You’ll also be accustomed to presenting and taking constructive criticism for your work during in-class critiques.
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION
We’re also in a great location—MNU is just 20 miles from the heart of Kansas City, one of the most vibrant creative cities in the Midwest. Kansas City is home to corporations, advertising agencies, printers, publishers and interactive design businesses, and our graduates are surrounded by a variety of job opportunities.
Graduates walk away with a robust and matured portfolio, as part of a senior seminar assignment.
