Program Goals Statement

In this program, students gain a foundation in design and drawing and develop skills in visual communication and interactive design with a focus on the creative process. In their second year, they choose electives to emphasize either an animation or motion graphics concentration.

Students create a portfolio of work showcasing their abilities with narrative in time-based media and either transfer to a four-year program in digital media or directly into careers supporting time-based design.


Program Information

  • Students develop their creative and technical potential while building a strong portfolio for use in transferring or towards the job market.
  • Graphic design classes use industry-standard software and hardware in a dedicated design computer lab.

Additional Information Sequencing

  • Students should plan to complete all Studio Foundation program courses before taking any Advanced Studio courses.

After BCC

  • Students can transfer to four-year B.F.A. programs in animation, new media, interactive design, motion graphics, broadcast design, or electronic imaging.
  • The program is also designed for immediate entry into the job market if desired.
  • If you plan to transfer to a four-year institution, visit the Transfer Affairs website at www.BristolCC.edu/transfer
