Student Experience

Most of the Department studios and labs are housed in the Center for the Arts and Bay Hall. The DOA+D maintains up-to-date classrooms, including computer labs for graphic design and photography and well-equipped studios for ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking, and sculpture.

The Center for the Arts also houses the Weil Gallery, featuring the work of local, regional, national, and internationally known artists as well as the student exhibitions and art faculty shows.

Studio Arts 

B.A. in Graphic Design majors must take Drawing, Art History, and Photography or Printmaking. Aside from the required coursework, students who have a more profound interest in the studio arts may elect to take advanced courses in Ceramics, Photography, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, and Printmaking. These courses provide creative expression in the fine arts, and many students use the hand skills gained through these immersive experiences within their graphic design work.

Electives and Minors

Outside of their major field of study, Graphic Design majors can explore other subject areas that support their career goals and interests. At TAMU-CC, many options are available, ranging from business to communications, marketing, studio art, and a whole slew of other concentrations to expand learning horizons. There are 18 hours of Upper Division elective credit available under the B.A. in Graphic design degree plan and many students choose to complete minors during their time in the program.
