University of Wisconsin - Green Bay

  • Bachelor of Arts in Arts and Communication offered on-campus and online
  • Design arts studies combine lectures with hands-on studio workshop experiences
  • Internship opportunities available

The University of Wisconsin System contains 11 universities as well as several 2-year colleges and extension schools. The Green Bay branch of the system serves more than 6,600 students. It offers primarily bachelor's and master's degree programs and provides 45 different academic majors and areas of emphasis.

The goal of the Bachelor of Arts in Design Arts program is to provide students with the ability to use both images and text to relay messages in a visual manner. Students investigate the theory of design, as well as the practical techniques that go into creating video and print communications. Courses cover design fundamentals, communication law, media, photography, graphic design and environmental design.

Students in the Bachelor of Art in Arts program tend to focus more on the artistic and creative aspects of the visual communications field. However, the art program can be taken with a studio art emphasis, which may prepare students for eventual careers in graphic design, advertising and other visual communications fields. Students can also choose to double major in art and design art.

This interdisciplinary Bachelor of Arts in Communication program is designed to help students understand how communication works in both traditional and electronic formats. The program is offered in five specializations, including one in electronic media. That emphasis focuses on the practicalities behind visual communication and teaches students how to use new media to reach out to potential consumers and audience bases.
