The Graphic and Digital Design program at the University of the Fraser Valley is run by forward thinking design leaders who challenge convention and embrace bold visions. We offer students a specialized experience that prepares them for a future in professional design practice. Today, designers are critical thinkers, collaborators and agents of change; they bring empathy to social issues, create value for businesses, and make the complex clear through smart visual solutions. Our Graphic Design programs build these skills through education that is purpose driven, responsive, and flexible, and our passionate faculty members encourage students to be engaged, eager, and resilient for the possibilities that await them in an increasingly complex world.
