Communication Design


  • Oxford
  • Minor
  • On Campus

Enable learners to gain the communication design thinking, knowledge, and skills that will enhance their core area of study.

Learners grow these competencies through exercises, projects, and learning experiences designed to develop practical, analytical, creative, emotional, and social intelligences. Those who complete the program are prepared to use their skills to develop and produce visual outcomes that communicate clearly, activating conceptual messaging and detailed aesthetic. The Communication Design Minor is composed of courses required for the BFA in Communication Design, giving students an opportunity to begin work toward either program during their first semester at Miami.
