Since the workplace demands deadlines, organizational skills are stressed in the program and students learn to finish work-simulated projects on-time. Project-based learning includes advertising, editorial page design, posters, packaging, and design for books, exhibitions and websites. This program prepares students for entry-level positions in advertising, publishing, and printing industries, as well as the art departments found in corporations and businesses.
