Belhaven announces Graphic Design major
In the fall of 2010, Belhaven College will build on its strong Christian arts curriculum by adding a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design to the undergraduate degree program, with emphases in Digital and Print Media or Web and Interactive Media. The Graphic Design program’s purpose is to enhance any student’s professional, design, and artistic skills through course work with intensive theory and practice, practical real world experiences, in-studio practicum, and professional internships.
Mr. Kris Dietrich will be the chair of this new department and major, and he is already passionate about this program. He says, “It is through the dynamic integration of Art, Design, and Technology that we will develop passionate, relevant, and strong graphic designers. This, on top of the foundation of a Christian worldview, will set our students apart from the crowd and prepare them to influence the culture in whatever field God calls them.”
