Schoolcraft program code # AAS.00028
Similar to the graphic arts certificate, this program teaches students how to blend traditional art techniques with skill using professional graphic design software to create illustrative, fine art and graphic media, preparing students for a wide range of jobs within the design industry. In addition, it includes capstone courses that develop creative and practical skills beyond what is taught in the certificate program, as well as coursework that meets the general education requirements for a Schoolcraft associate in applied science (AAS) degree. The degree strengthens the student’s position in the profession and gives the student an academic credential with a higher standing.
Students who satisfactorily complete all college and program requirements qualify for an associate in applied science degree. Students wishing to pursue a post-associate certificate must have a computer graphics technology associate degree or equivalent professional experience.
Not all courses are offered each semester. Students should work with an academic advisor or Computer Graphics Technology (CGT) faculty to develop a schedule that will work for them. Students planning to transfer should check the transfer institution’s requirements/guides or discuss their options with an academic advisor. Number of credits may vary depending on the course selection.
