The Graphic Arts Technology Program at Clinton Community College provides training
for students with an interest in the field of Graphic Arts. Our two-year program has
a proven track record in providing students the advanced, real-world skills needed
to be successful.
Our classes and curriculum provide the core skills necessary for employment in the
Graphic Arts Industry. Throughout the program, a strong emphasis is placed upon detail-oriented,
on-time work. From day one students are placed into a team atmosphere where they learn
constructive problem-solving techniques that can be applied to the every day problems
they will face in the industry.
In addition, our curriculum is flexible enough so that students can further develop
their skills in specific area(s) by choosing a minimum of two technical electives
while in the program. These electives allow students to gain advanced or varied skills
in website development, graphic design, prepress, press, photography, Photoshop and/or
3D Modeling and Animation.
Finally, students entering their fourth semester register for a cooperative work experience
that offers them an opportunity to demonstrate their skills and get real world experience.
