This certificate is designed to advance the skills of designers already working in the field but who need to strengthen, extend or replenish their creative and technical skills in Graphic Design. Participants in the Advanced Certificate must already have a degree in Graphic Design or a related field and will be required either to fulfill the pre-requisites for the courses through their prior degree coursework or submit to the coordinator a portfolio for consideration of pre-requisite waivers. As the graphic design industry encompasses a wider range of media, this certificate is meant to strengthen the skills in design and alternative media in order to improve a graduate's marketability in this fast-changing industry. Individual students can emphasize a specific area of Graphic Design by selecting elective courses that meet their goals.
