WAUKESHA, WIS.— Beginning in fall 2013, Carroll University will offer a Master of Science degree in graphic communication. Courses will be offered year-round, one night per week, and students can complete the program in about 24 months on a part-time basis.
Students will take courses such as Interactive and Social Marketing, New Design Tools, Campaigns, Copyright, Licensing, and Ethics. Courses will be taught by Carroll faculty and industry professionals. The program offers an international component; students may attend a seven-day design experience abroad.
“The changing media landscape requires graphic communication professionals to keep abreast of the newest technologies, digital media innovations, and development of advanced marketing mechanisms,” said Dan Becker, assistant professor and director of the Graphic Communication Program. “The role of designers and creative thinkers has expanded to include more than just familiarity of social media marketing, responsive web design, cutting-edge printing technologies, and forward designing techniques. Businesses, nonprofits and creative organizations need business‐ and communication‐savvy designers who can communicate effectively through a variety of media vehicles.”
