Whether it’s working for an advertising agency, a book or magazine publisher, or within a corporate design department, our graphic design majors graduate with the foundation needed to succeed professionally.

Join our Pre-Professional Graphic Design Studio

In addition to coursework, students have the opportunity to work on real-world projects through InHouse Design, a student-run pre-professional graphic design studio. These projects give them an opportunity to build a professional body of work, as well as provide insight into the process of working independently or as a member of a team for real clients both on campus and at not-for-profits organizations in neighboring communities.

Students may also participate in graphic design-related internships, further building the bridge to professional practice. From Stonehill’s own Marketing Department to large NYC agencies, graphic design students may gain experiences that support future goals.

“Thanks to great teaching, I was able to produce some great designs. I also learned that I want to fuse my studio art skills with graphic design in the future - possibly as a career.”

Dedicated Faculty & State-of-the-Art Resources

In graphic design, students work closely with a faculty advisor who helps them develop an independent project or mentor them as they seek an internship suited to their skills and professional goals. With such guidance, the relationship between form and content comes alive on the page or screen as students develop concepts and articulate them using sophisticated software in our Mac lab.
