For me, the program gave students everything they needed to not only compete, but excel in the real world job market and workplace scenarios –– in short finding a job and keeping it. Conversely, it is also about who you know, maybe even more so, and the program has a vast network of partnerships that trust the quality output of students each year.

Welcome to the Communication Arts Department at Chowan University. We offer the following degrees: B.S. in Graphic Design and a B.S. in Business & Design and a minor in graphic design. Graphic Design students graduate prepared to enter and gainfully contribute to a variety of communication-related fields that combine various media, art, and technology. These fields include but are not limited to graphic design, print and related media, broadcasting, sports media, fine arts, and art therapy. 

Our talented faculty members each bring real-world experience to the classroom, further expanding the student’s learning experience. Students can gain their own real-world, hands-on work experience through internship programs available in most Communication Arts degree programs further preparing students for their careers after graduation.

All Communication Arts programs require students to be highly engaged and involved in their learning. Most concepts are learned and perfected by completing projects – allowing students to not only gain required skills but fine-tune them and realize strengths to later direct career decisions. Students who enjoy hands-on, experiential learning should strongly consider the programs offered within the Department of Communication Arts.
