Overview

Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design

For over forty years, the acclaimed program has trained highly-skilled, creative individuals for the growing profession of Graphic Design. 

This three-year advanced diploma program prepares graduates for direct entry into work environments including design studios, ad agencies, interactive web and game design studios, publishing houses, marketing firms, and film & television production studios.

The program of study develops the creative potential of each student in three specific ways:

  • The creation of a personal portfolio that demonstrates an understanding of design fundamentals using advanced software skills.
  • The process and application of design thinking to solve complex communication problems.
  • Direct, hands-on experience with professional clients representing a broad range of industries.

St. Lawrence College trains students in the foundations of composition and layout, typography, colour, interactive and accessible design principles, and the use of industry-standard software. 

The project-based learning approach ensures that students are directly involved in shaping their learning experiences and that principles and best practices are applied in portfolio-driven work across different media. 

By working directly with clients throughout their final year of study, students develop their knowledge base with real-world challenges. 

SLC Graphic Design graduates excel in creative problem-solving, design thinking, and approaches to user-centred design that is required by the growing creative economy.

With dedicated studio, lecture, and Mac lab spaces, SLC Graphic Design gives students the opportunity to collaborate on projects and develop social networks in a supportive learning environment.
