Students in the illustration program learn to visually communicate ideas and narratives for print and electronic media. With all of the visual information that we encounter on a daily basis in movies, television, games, and online, it is clear that illustrators play an important role in our increasingly visual hungry society. Common industries that commission freelance illustration, or employ illustrators include advertising, editorial, book, comic, entertainment, medicine, biology, fashion, and architecture. An illustration graduate will have experience in a variety of illustration forms to ensure that they have the ability to solve problems for many different clients. Students learn to develop their own original content, thereby adding their distinct voice to the visual culture, and preparing them to take advantage of new opportunities for illustration that open each day.
