Certificate Requirements

General Information

Monroe County Community College’s “stackable” certificates in graphic design enable students to obtain a broad introduction into the concepts and techniques used in the field. These certificates can be “stacked” and applied toward additional certificates and/or an associate of applied science degree in graphic design. MCCC’s associate of applied science degree has three concentrations: digital media, illustration and Web design. Students in the digital media concentration will explore the fundamentals of design, creation of graphical assets, publication design, three-dimensional design and time-based media using industry-standard software. Students in the illustration concentration will explore the digital media concepts with a focus on art history and traditional art fundamentals. Students in the Web design concentration will explore the fundamentals of design with a focus on designing for the Web.

Career Opportunities
Students may work as graphic designers, desktop publishers, pre-press technicians, commercial artists, entry-level Web designers and multimedia artists.
