    Visual Communications (Bohlen & Sackett Career and Tech Centers)

    Take a quick look around at your surroundings. Advertising, product packaging, videos, websites and interactive games––they’re all part of your sensory world…and they were all designed to capture your attention and interest. Learn to be a part of the creative processes that bring this visual world to life in the Visual Communications Program. In this two-year program, you’ll be using cutting-edge technology and software packages to prepare for further study and/or gain an entry-level position in one of the already established or emerging communications arts career areas. The program includes studio-based instruction and creation of a professional portfolio, as well as either an in-house or industry-placed internship.
