Rising juniors, seniors and recent high school graduates discover the possibilities of a career in graphic communications management, where marketing and information technology solve business problems through a graphic design medium.
In a weeklong residency camp, rising high school juniors and seniors and recent graduates have the opportunity to create printed artifacts using Adobe Creative Suite and industry printing presses in the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art’s state-of-the-art Graphic Communication Management (GCM) labs. Each day, students learn different printing and production processes through hands-on experiences taught by Georgia Southern professors. Evenings are fun-filled with movies, karaoke, and access to Georgia Southern University’s Recreation Activities Center (RAC).
Why a Career in GCM?
Leaders and management in GCM manufacturing are needed! “Printing and related occupations employ the third largest number of people in manufacturing in the United States.” (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics).
The BFSDoArt provides a progressive environment and interdisciplinary curriculum including hands-on learning with industrial equipment, internships within the profession, scholarships and career placement for broad career placement.
Georgia Southern is the only university in the Southeast to offer a dual-degree program in graphic communications management and graphic design.
Attending Graphics Summer Camp provides students the opportunity to experience Georgia Southern University.
