Learn about EICC’s Online Graphic Arts Program — Nov. 16
In 2021, Eastern Iowa Community Colleges moved its long-standing Graphic Arts program entirely online. For more than 25 years, the program has provided students with the advanced, real-world skills needed to be successful in the graphic arts industry. Today, the program boasts students from across the country and continues to provide the same high-quality education at an affordable cost.
For those interested in exploring a graphic design career, the college is hosting an online information session on Wednesday, November 16, at 5:30 p.m. CST. Participants will get to meet the instructors, learn more about the program, discuss career paths, and dive into financial aid opportunities.

The program includes both a two-year Graphic Arts Technology, Associate in Applied Science Degree, as well as a one-year Graphic Arts Technology Diploma. Students can elect to start in the diploma program and continue on in the associate’s degree, without losing any time or tuition dollars.
In the first year, students dive right into hands-on, in-depth training in Adobe products including Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. They also receive a strong understanding of important areas such as color theory and correction, drawing, typography, and art appreciation.
The second year includes training in packaging design, study in content management systems for website development, social media branding, and project management. Students will then put their knowledge to the test with an internship and the production of a personal portfolio for use in future job interviews.
Upon completion, graduates have the real-world skills needed for employment in business, commercial printing, media outlets, advertising agencies, website production, and more.
