With three locations in Blackwood, Camden, and Cherry Hill, New Jersey, this school is one of the region's largest public post-secondary institutions of higher education and New Jersey's second-largest county college. This college is a technology-rich environment that supports teaching, learning, and working.
The fine arts degree in studio arts program aims to prepare students for transfer into four-year art colleges as well as developing foundation art skills for those pursuing careers in the visual arts. The CADD program is a lab-intensive, hands-on approach to education in computer graphics. This career-oriented major consists of both basic general education courses and technical electives in the student's specialty.
The computer graphics program integrates design skills with computerized skills and hardware and software to help prepare students for the real world. This career-oriented program consists of a computer graphic core, general education components, and a cooperative education option. Finally, the communications program is designed to teach the technology, theory, and process of communication. Students participate in internships at local media operations and businesses. Some courses may be offered through distance education as well.
The student who is interested in a design career can advance their career prospects through occupational certificates programs, two-year associate degree programs, and non-credit courses.
