Student Experience

''Choosing graphic design as a career path wasn't my first choice as I entered my new life at EAC. I knew I wanted to study art, but I didn't know what kind. I took graphic design classes for fun as part of my artistic journey. My instructor showed me the wonderful world of design and I have benefited greatly from pursuing graphic design since I have graduated. The graphic design classes I took gave me the knowledge and confidence to break into the industry as a professional designer. I would not be the person I am today without Eastern Arizona College's graphic design program.''

-Tori Mann

“A smart, affordable choice for starting a career as a graphic designer.
The courses are set up to inform and inspire you to become proficient
in several design programs.

Coming to EAC was the best decision I could have made. The instructors pass on knowledge
of design techniques, styles, and programs. They work with the community on
where the jobs are and what employers are expecting from new designers.

The program has given me
the confidence and skills necessary
to get started as a professional designer.”
