Everywhere you look, you’ll find graphic design. The study of graphic design will prepare you to interpret and communicate data in innovative ways, giving you a greater ability to persuade a target audience. At Hillsdale, you’ll study with working artists and create visual representations of ideas for retail, the public sector, advertising, and every possible permutation of communications. Graphic Design is offered as a minor only.
