The program offers four years of course work in design and design technology applications. Students learn the fundamentals of design, typography, color theory, branding and identity, packaging, and design history, with a spattering of interaction design. In addition, most will graduate from the program with fluency in Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign software. The program also hosts the most active student community on the Cabrillo campus fostering three different clubs: National Art Honors Society, Design Associates, and Design Scouts. Through community and collaboration students invested in the program spend countless hours exploring the world and ramifications of Design. Every student develops a portfolio of their work, which will allow them to pursue a career in design, and if they so wish continue their education at an art/design school.
