Visual Communication Design Students

In WOU's small classes, students work closely with faculty in a supportive, rigorous environment to gain creative and practical design skills in multiple media. Courses emphasize effective learning, collaboration, and technological expertise. Projects engage design challenges using a multitude of materials -- brochures, packaging, posters, websites, apps, exhibition displays, video, animation, and more.

Visual Communication Design students begin with art foundations courses, then continue with fundamentals of typography, photography, and digital images. They develop knowledge of design processes and theory, hone technical proficiencies, and incorporate research methods into their design work. Collaborative projects engage the campus and surrounding community, connecting students to the social role of design.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the Western Oregon University site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
