Envision the world you want to see.
You have talent and ideas—but that’s just the beginning. As a designer, you’ll alter how people interact with the world.
It starts with an understanding of the design process and the ability to think visually. And it comes to life in courses that teach you to use type and images in media for a variety of purposes. You’ll get hands-on experience in print, motion, experiential, and interactive design.
Freshman year is a time to unpack your preconceptions about design. It’s when you can begin asking big questions, generating new ideas, and establishing yourself within a community of artists and designers. With a foundation in critical skills, from color theory to typography to conceptual thinking, you’ll gain exposure to professional tools that evolve your work.
While you’re developing your identity as a designer, you’ll also be cultivating the entrepreneurial skills necessary to navigate the business side of art and design. With an emphasis on how to differentiate yourself, promote your work, and form visual solutions to practical problems, your design education will prepare you for the career you want. Just like more than 90 percent of our graduates.
In fact, you’ll begin working during your program. Required internships are a core component of the Lesley University graphic design experience. Through our connections, you’ll have the chance to bring your talent to some of the top studios, agencies, and magazines in Boston and beyond.
