Beginning with the Fall 2010 semester, Benedictine University will offer a Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Arts and Design. The Graphic Arts and Design major will provide a well-rounded, liberal arts preparation for students seeking entry into graduate study or entry-level employment in a field related to graphic arts and design.

The program is designed to educate students to solve creative problems within art and design, including those involving issues of technical, aesthetic and conceptual knowledge; to familiarize students with a variety of philosophical and stylistic approaches to contemporary art and design; and to build incentives and connect students to the job market through internships.

The major will be offered through the College of Liberal Arts.
