ABOUT COMMUNICATION DESIGN (BFA)

From there, students investigate various approaches, methods, and media through a selection of courses, internships, and sponsored projects within the realms of publication, interaction design, branding, advertising, type design, information design, motion graphics, and environmental design.

For more information, including admission, curriculum, faculty, and courses, visit BFA Communication Design on the Parsons website.
