Visual Communications-Management in Art Direction Program Requirements

Associate in Applied Science Degree – NMC Code 251

This Visual Communications program is designed for students who have already earned the VCA Associate in Applied Science degree and are looking to expand their skills and local employment opportunities instead of transferring to a four-year BFA or university program. This degree focuses on a tailored set of courses from other disciplines that expose you to marketing, copywriting, small business management, digital photography and other practical skills that will help them enter the work force. A 180 hour summer internship with a local marketing/design/advertising or film firm is a required part of this program.
