Our new Integrated Design diploma program will give you the fundamental design skills and critical thinking needed to become a successful designer in the 21st century.

This one-of-a-kind, accelerated diploma program incorporates a hands-on approach to material culture, sustainability and fine craftsmanship.

In three semesters you’ll explore and experiment, collaborate, communicate and discover your design talent, and be prepared to apply your knowledge to whatever design specialty you choose to pursue.

Visual and Creative Arts Diploma

VCAD = foundation courses + elective courses

We offer unique and flexible options for earning a diploma in the visual arts. Choose the learning path that's right for you.
