The bachelor of science in Graphic Information Technology (GIT) program prepares students for a seamless career as a graphic technologist. The cross-media nature of the graphic information industry requires tomorrow’s graduates to understand the full spectrum of graphic technology and current business practices. After graduation, you will be ready for careers in a broad range of fields including web design/development, print design and digital publishing, commercial photography/video and technical imaging.
At ASU’s Polytechnic campus, you will have access to state-of-the-art, industry-standard equipment in dedicated student labs. And you will work closely with faculty and mentors who are industry leaders in all fields of graphic information technology.
