Classes are taught in a hybrid studio/seminar format, in which demonstrations, lectures, discussions, and critiques alternate with work periods. Projects are often undertaken in collaboration with other campus programs.
Graphic design majors have studied abroad in a number of countries including Scotland, England, Italy, France, and Australia. The department regularly brings students on field trips to museums, design studios, and lectures in New York City and Albany.
The number of BFA graduates of the graphic design program has doubled from 15-18 per year to more than 30 in the 2014-2015 academic year. This growth can be attributed to the post-graduation success of BFAs, as well as improved departmental procedures.
