Keiser University's Associate of Science in Graphic Arts and Design teaches visual communication and computer design skills with an emphasis on multimedia and online delivery. Graphic designers and multimedia practitioners create and deliver communication solutions for clients in a variety of media. Although print skills are still a foundation of design, employers and clients expect today's designer to be competent in web communications, video production and newer technologies that are just now beginning to emerge. Successful candidates do not need to have existing art or computer skills. Opportunities exist in graphic arts and design for artists, technicians, problem-solvers and good communicators.
