The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Graphic Design and Interactive Media program prepares students with the skills and flexibility to adapt to the rapidly changing nature of the graphic design and interactive media industry. UW-Stout graduates work at and have opened their own design firms nationally and globally. The success of our students is derived from a program that highlights the intersections of fine art, design, history, sustainability and a strong liberal arts education.
Developing the ability and knowledge to communicate using digital/technical communication systems and processes while understanding social, psychological and economic implications in relation to a variety of clients and design situations is a central objective of this proposed program, as well. Students will acquire “hands on” experience using industry standard tools, software and creative techniques, and are encouraged to participate in research projects, co-ops or study abroad programs.
A required mid-program portfolio review offers graphic design and interactive media students an assessment of their progress in foundation art and design courses. Extensive library resources and the art and design department visual resource center are significant assets. A 2.5 overall grade point average and a 2.0 or better in art and design department courses is required to complete this Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. An experiential learning component is required of all graduates of the BFA in Graphic Design and Interactive Media program, and may be successfully completed by participating in a co-op, internship, international study program, field experience or sponsored project. Graphic Design and Interactive Media students must present a portfolio of their work in the final semester as part of a public exhibition hosted by the School of Art and Design.
The BFA in Graphic Design and Interactive Media program provides students with an innovative education that is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
