What Students Are Saying
“This program builds you from the ground up. You start out with little to no design knowledge, and by the end (if you work hard) your skills are comparable, and a lot of times better, than if you were to have attended a four-year school. I honestly am so glad I chose the program at SCC. Nowhere else would’ve given me the amount of tools I need for the real world.”Kenny Beyer Fall 2015 – @ Nanonation
“When I decided to go back to school and study design, I had my sights set on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. I never considered SCC until my advisor told me how incredible SCC’s Graphic Design/Media Arts program is. I am so thankful that I chose this path. This is the program that helped me see myself and my abilities in ways I never expected. The bulk of the program isn’t about memorizing or following along. It’s about learning the core skills and thought processes needed to succeed in the professional design world.”Taylor Stimbert Spring 2017 @ Maly Marketing
