Graphic Design, AFA Statewide Program (School of Art + Design)


Return to Programs of Study Return to: Programs of Study

: 902A

Students who plan to major in graphic design in the School of Art + Design will be assigned the temporary major code of 902A until they are officially admitted to the program. Students may take preparatory courses and courses that fulfill General Education requirements during the waiting period.

This track is studio intensive, with two-thirds of the total credit hours in studio art and graphic design courses, and one-third of the total credit hours in general education courses. The program will prepare students for transfer to a four-year institution to pursue a bachelor of fine arts degree.

All students should meet with their adviser to plan their program of study as well as their transfer and career goals. For more information on the School of Art + Design, see Special Programs .

The Maryland Higher Education Commission designates some community college programs as statewide programs. A student may enroll in any of these programs at the same rates as in-county residents if his or her particular program is not offered by the local community college or if the student cannot enroll due to an enrollment limit. For more information on statewide programs, please see Curricula Information .
