This certificate outlines a sequence of courses designed for artists and technicians working in the design field or those who would like to obtain employment as computer graphic designers, computer illustrators and desktop publishers. (See corresponding degree program for details.) Although courses may be taken in any sequence as long as prerequisites are met, certain courses (CGR-110 and CGR-115) are strongly recommended before others as the skills developed in these courses are utilized and applied in the more advanced courses.
