Graphic Design

NNU's graphic design program provides students with a balanced and comprehensive series of courses which prepare them to excel in the professional field. Unlike many programs of its kind, NNU's graphic design program requires students to develop proficiency in both print-based design and design for the online/digital environment. Each of these requirements contributes to producing professional-caliber graphic design graduates.

Students at NNU learn through individual attention in a Christ-centered atmosphere. In our state-of-the-art Macintosh lab and studios, students work on projects designed to develop their technical and conceptual capabilities, expand their capacity for critical thinking, and stimulate their imagination. Students come to understand the various cultural, historical, and socio-political forces that give meaning and value to the work they produce through discussions with their peers, faculty, and professional designers.

Upon graduation, many of our students have secured positions with top design firms, corporations, and advertising agencies, while others have successfully pursued careers as independent designers, creating books, magazines, logos, portable digital apps, websites, interactive kiosks, posters, exhibits, and advertising campaigns.

My professors are more like friends to me. I can go to them not only academically or professionally and ask help about art or design or photography, but I could go to them and talk about life problems I'm having. And they're very invested in every student that comes through their doors which I really admired about them.
