Graphic Design

Graphic designers inform, educate, persuade or advocate through the interaction of words and images. The graphic design program at WSU empowers students to think broadly and critically about design. We train students to focus on the informational and problem-solving nature of graphic design while learning to effectively visualize their design ideas with professionalism, impact, and social and environmental responsibility.
