Welcome to MASC 300 Media Graphics

This course is designed to help students develop proficiency in and knowledge of print-based graphic communication principles and techniques, and state-of-the-art computer graphics programs. Students will learn graphics design programs including Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign, and gain hands-on experience in the applications of related design principles and tools. Students will work on several small projects that will lead to a comprehensive layout assignment.. The goal is to emphasize more than just the skills associated with individual programs, but the integration of several programs into designing effective and attractive publications.

In addition, the class will address social implications of design, and will focus on design principles and theory. At the end of the semester, students will receive an introduction to Web graphic techniques so as to create an online portfolio of work created in this class.

The course time on most days includes lecture during the first half and lab time during the second half.

Please take a moment to fill out the class survey. This will help design lessons that will meet the experience level of all participants.
