What Is the B.F.A.?

The B.F.A. (Bachelor of Fine Arts) in Graphic Design will prepare students with a wealth of professional and practical skills, from hands-on production to ideation and developing interpersonal relationships. Across multiple industries, the importance of ‘design thinking’ has become a growing asset, where being able to solve problems creatively—and communicate these solutions clearly—is a sought-after skill.

While some degrees will give students a taste of professional development, our B.F.A. program will allow students to experience the field in print, web and motion design. This focus on personal, professional development begins the first semester on-campus and carries through students’ professional portfolio reviews at graduation.

Along with internships, artistic and client-based work, our students leave WVWC with a wide range of skills across various design media.
