"Graphic Design To start, you'll need to complete gen eds and the foundations for the program. I believe those include basic drawing, painting, and sculpture classes. The painting class is particularly expensive, so keep that in mind. I think it came out to over $100 for supplies and whatnot. After that, you'll take Graphic Design 1-3 as well as some art history courses and a few electives. The professors for the design classes are pretty great-the projects are interesting and you'll be able to challenge yourself. If Bill Kerr still teaches there, make sure to take a class with him! He's one of the best professors I've ever had for any class I've ever taken. He's genuinely interesting, he's incredibly well versed in the field and in related work, and he also cares about his students. If I could, I'd go back in time and take his classes exclusively. The end of the program culminates with a gallery exhibition. it's sort of a freestyle project, so make sure you brainstorm some ideas even though it's at the end of senior year! Digital Cinema The professor that teaches the program is a really interesting guy and you can learn a lot from him, but I wouldn't recommend this program unless you are incredibly self driven and want a sort of independent study type thing. I'd go with photography instead if you want to take this route."

"Dominican was great for me, as I found the small but beautiful campus to be very welcoming. I enjoyed that class sizes were small, and all of the faculty were very helpful and committed to their students' learning."

"Attending Dominican University was one of the best decisions I've made in my life. The four years I spent on DU's campus were filled with challenges and successes, strong relationships, and an academic experience that has gotten me to where I am today. The small class sizes and the opportunity to personally know faculty members were some of the top reasons I chose DU. Throughout my time there, I was mentored by multiple professors, as I was challenged to think in a new way in all of my classes. If you would have asked me as an 18-year-old what I would have been involved with during college, I would have had no idea. During my time at DU, I became involved in University Ministry, Academic Advising, Residence Life, Undergraduate Admissions, Student Involvement, and other initiatives on campus. The people I met, both other students and staff members, have each impacted my life in a significant way, and I am forever grateful for that. Dominican provided me with an excellent education and opportunities to succeed academically, while challenging me to grow as an individual outside of the classroom as well!"
