Monroe County Community College’s “stackable” certificates in graphic design enable students to obtain a broad introduction into the concepts and techniques used in the field. These certificates can be “stacked” and applied toward additional certificates and/or an associate of applied science degree in graphic design.

Students in the digital media concentration will explore the fundamentals of design, creation of graphical assets, publication design, three-dimensional design and time-based media using industry-standard software.
