Bachelor of Media Arts

University of St. Francis, Joliet, IL
While attending the University of St. Francis, I experienced an in-depth program that covers a wide range of topics including graphic design, web design, photography, typography, identities and publications.  The program stresses individual work as well as teamwork preparing students for the corporate world.
