Students in the B.F.A. in Graphic Design major are required to complete six credits of design internship and/or participate in our unique Design Studio class. Students enrolled in Design Studio work with regional nonprofit organizations in design teams on-campus. Students taking internships work off-campus alongside design professionals as mentors. In addition, a number of classes create materials for College events, groups, and clubs.

Students in illustration, graphic design, web design and video production courses have regular opportunities to collaborate on real-world projects including publicity materials for the LSC Cultural Festival, holiday and birthday cards, graduation and robing ceremony booklets, Quimby Gallery posters, department web sites, brochures for Lyndon’s Academic Support Center, and promotional materials for Earth Day. Working with the Incubator Without Walls (iWOW), Lyndon’s school and small business partnership, student designers are able to freelance for nonprofit organizations and interact one-on-one with actual clients.
