The Graphic Design Technology curriculum is a two-year program of study designed to prepare the student for entry-level employment and advancement in the field of graphic design, commercial art, media art, and web graphics. Students receive instruction in the design and execution of printed publications, packaging, web graphics, illustrations, rendering, logo design, and design principles necessary to produce designs for printed ads, books, posters, billboards, catalogs, brochures, and other forms of visual communications. Course work references industry specifications, including the selection of ink and paper, screen printing, sign making, and other printing/binding techniques.

This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science Degree and is preparatory for employment upon graduation from MGCCC. Where a transfer to a senior college or university is desired, a conference should be scheduled with a community college advisor for advisement.

All students completing a career or technical program must complete either the MS-CPAS (Mississippi Career Planning and Assessment System) or an MGCCC Board- approved Technical Attainment Assessment where applicable. See your advisor for further details.
