Studying design at Loyola University New Orleans provides you the opportunity of a lifetime. This major prepares students for a wide-range of career options as a graphic design professional from motion graphics and web design to exhibitions and careers in education.
The focus of the Design curriculum is to create a balance between design and technology. The program begins with a foundation in design, drawing and art appreciation and starts to integrate technology during the first semester. Design principles, creative thinking and problem-solving techniques, as they apply to the media arts, give the student a strong foundation for entry into the work force, and for advanced study at other colleges and universities. Students work in a state-of-the-art digital arts center for hands-on computer training.
Students create projects using electronic media, typographic design, publication design, photojournalism, advertising illustration photography, and color management.
The new Social Political Design + Narrative class at Loyola is based on the principles of experiential learning and designing for the social good.
