The Student Experience

The Graphic Communications Program at CSN has been created with the aim of providing students with knowledge, critical thinking, and functional skills to be prepared for today’s workforce. Students practice in both conceptual and practical work, as well as in realistic industry-related work.

Implementing industry practices, standards and trends is a vital aspect of creating future professionals. At the College of Southern Nevada, students are exposed to all of these. With instructors that are active outside of the academic world, future designers get a grasp of the demands, challenges, and rewards of a career in the field of design.

In addition to talented faculty, students at CSN have access to the latest software, equipment and facilities. This ensures that upon graduation, you can hit the ground running.
