At EMCC, we offer a program in Digital Graphic Design to fit the ever-expanding opportunities in this rewarding field. Our associate in applied science degree in Digital Graphic Design is designed to prepare students for employment as designers who work with printed and digital media. Students entering the job market will be hired as graphic designers, photographers, print media designers, illustrators, and web designers.
