Graphic & Web Design Track
From the introduction of the first printing press to the colonies in 1639 to the technology of today's digital age, Boston has long been a catalyst for innovations in communication and design.
Students in the Graphic & Web Design track explore the fundamentals of graphic design and interactive media through creative projects and assignments. Internship areas include magazine and book design, publishing, web development and design, and advertising.

Internship Site: Mystic View Design
On the Job: I interned at Mystic View Design, a corporate graphic design company in Chelsea. They are a very small company with a strong client base. I worked on projects from business cards and annual reports to websites.
Perspectives: The skills that I learned in my graphic and web design courses (both of which were wonderful classes, with a great group of students and really hands-on professors) not only made me very confident about my interviews with graphic design firms, but also aided in some of my internship work.
