THATCHER, AZ—Eastern Arizona College students studying Graphic Design now have another option upon graduation. They may choose to pursue a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from Collins College in Tempe under a new articulation agreement. This agreement, signed by Eastern Arizona College President Mark Bryce and Collins College President John Calman, guarantees a transfer of credits from EAC’s graphic design associate of applied science program to the bachelor’s program at Collins.

It also gives students an opportunity to begin their graphic design instruction at a small, low-cost institution, then transfer to a place well-known for its industry connections and cutting-edge instruction.

“Students can now begin their education at EAC, where they can save money both in tuition and housing, then easily transfer to Collins to take advantage of their quality, renowned programs,” said Jeb Earl, EAC graphic design instructor and art department head. “This agreement opens the door for potential workshops and field trips for our students to tap into the larger resources of a place like Collins.”
