Degree Plan

Are you interested in art and technology? Are you a conceptual and objective thinker? Then a Communication Design Degree might be the perfect major for you. Communication Design is one of the most practical and powerful art forms of our time, as well as a rapidly expanding industry. Communication Design is the visual articulation of information that surrounds us every day in forms ranging from new and social media, to books and periodicals, to film and animation, as well as countless others. Communication Design is an inspiring way to see and interpret the world. Want to learn more? Request information on the programs that interest you.

The Communication Design curriculum at the University of Houston-Victoria is built around a sequence of contemporary design courses that offer a fresh perspective on the field. The courses required for the major begin sophomore year when students take two sets of paired courses: Design History and Typography in the fall; Design Theory and Digital Design in the spring. Juniors and seniors continue the core sequences and also have the opportunity to take advanced electives in Digital Gaming & Simulation, Communication, Marketing, or Humanities. The students’ experience culminates during the senior year with an internship at one of UHV’s partner organizations and the Senior Seminar.
