How Do I Get Into The Program?
I'm In - Now What?
The students that get into the BFA in Graphic Design have the opportunity to go with the BFA class on an internship trip to NYC. There you will get to tour various design studios and may even get the chance to interview! If you want to intern somewhere other than New York, you can work with your professors to find an internship in another state.
Graduates from the Graphic Design Program will be able to exhibit a professional work ethic, demonstrate the ability to work collaboratively, and present themselves professionally through a well-designed portfolio and effective written and oral communication. Upon graduation, alumni go on to work for renowned studios, establish their own design studios, or do freelance work.
BYU Graphic Design Alumni have been awarded numerous esteemed awards from major design studios and magazines, both nationally and internationally. Such awards include, but are not limited to - publications in the Communication Arts Typography Annual, and features in the Print Magazine.
