As a predominately visual and image-conscious culture, the ability to effectively read the visual language of imagery has become a crucial social skill. To paraphrase Walter Benjamin, "Those who cannot interpret imagery will be the illiterate of the future".

With this in mind, the Visual Art Department at Hillsborough Community College is committed to cultivating an educated student body that recognizes and understands the power that images wield, in both historical and contemporary contexts, while also being able to command the foundations of that visual lexicon to their own ends and means.

The AA in Graphic Design is a pre-major for students who wish to pursue a four-year college/university degree in graphic design or commercial arts. Careers include creating graphics for posters, magazines, graphic novels, web pages, newspapers, and other media formats.
