Program Overview

What Arizona State University says about their program:
"The BAS program with a concentration in graphic information technology allows students who have an applicable AAS from an accredited institution to transfer 60 credit hours toward a Bachelor of Applied Science degree at ASU. Students pursuing this degree may have more than 60 credit hours to complete in order to obtain their Bachelor of Applied Science upon transfer to ASU. Students who have earned an Associate of Applied Science degree from a regionally accredited Arizona community college may be eligible to transfer up to 75 credits toward the Bachelor of Applied Science degree. Students should work with their academic advisor to ensure their courses will meet degree requirements.

The cross-media nature of the graphics industry requires tomorrow's graduates to understand the full spectrum of visual design and production as well as current business practices. The graphic information technology program prepares graduates for careers as visual design technologists encompassing front-end web design and development, printing and digital publishing, commercial photography and videography, and game art and animation. This is an intensive program of study emphasizing theory and hands-on laboratory practice.
