We both attained BFA degrees with a concentration in Graphic Design. We felt it was a good balance as we got to learn a lot about the creative process through other mediums (such as drawing and painting), but we were still immersed in quite a bit of graphic design. In any case, we believe that the extra time you put into furthering your skills outside of class is where you have a chance to truly separate yourself from your peers. Don’t expect following the minimum requirements to put you anywhere but the middle of the pack. We spent almost all of our free time reading un-required books, following hundreds of design blogs, and making posters and websites for fun.
