    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course, and professor, have opened my eyes and filled me with enthusiasm for the rest of my education within my major. Professor Ludwig gives challenging, yet enjoyable projects that encourage creative individuality while pushing the artist outside of their comfort zone with new concepts and technology that I, nor many other students, have had experience with before taking her class.

    Course highlights:

    Though each project came with it's own challenges, the prompts that Professor Ludwig provides leave plenty of room for students to express their creativity. Within the course, we explored and created projects within Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop and Final Cut Pro. After completing each project, I felt well equipt with the foundations needed to continue to advance my skills within these programs.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Investing extra time and remaining ambitious (while also being aware of your own limitations) is vital in order to get the most out of this class. Ask the Prof. Ludwig for feedback as well, she is incredibly encouraging and will help her students to the best of her ability.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend taking this course with Charlesworth, especially in a summer session, because he allows you a lot of time to work independently and is always open to new ideas and discussion.

    Course highlights:

    I learned the basics of Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Premiere Pro in order to complete various projects. For me, critiques were the highlights of the class.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Manage your time wisely, especially during summer sessions. Deadlines approach quickly, so work ahead whenever you can.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    For any art lover or graphic design major, this is a must take course. We got to explore all kinds of different medias, from designing web advertisements to producing abstract short films. My professor and class mates were engaging, the environment was fun and friendly and everyone tried their hardest. The results were inspiring and I met a lot of my now close friends.

    Course highlights:

    I personally really enjoyed the video project and the web advertisement. The class taught me essential skills like how to more effectively use Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro. I use these skills to actually make money by designing album covers and electronic portraits of people, and for fun I use what I learned in Premiere to make videos. With what I've learned from this course, I have been able to update my resume and reach out to a wider variety of employers. I definitely recommend this course to anyone who is a graphic design major or just likes art.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Work hard and get involved. The only time there was ever a lull in the excitement of class was when someone either didn't do their work or mostly blew off the assignment. Graphic design is a competitive industry and people take their school seriously, so just be respectful and do your share of the work and you're guaranteed to make more friends.
