In existence for over 40 years, the Graphic Design Program at Santa Monica College serves both the student who wishes to transfer to a four-year college or art school, as well as the student who wants to obtain the skills necessary for entry into the job market as a production artist in graphic design, illustration, user experience design, or interaction design.
Students can study a wide variety of graphic design classes, ranging from foundation studio classes that emphasize design process to application-specific courses teaching Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, as well as motion graphics and web design software.
Interaction Design (IxD) is an innovative new baccalaureate degree program that blends the fields of design, user experience, and technology to create user-friendly interfaces with the platforms people use every day, such as smart appliances, mobile devices, and the web. Interaction designers ensure that products are appealing, effective, and intuitive for users. In this program, students will develop proficiency in the skills necessary to enter this well-paid and exciting field.
