Part creative mind, part problem solver, you are a budding visual designer—and MacEwan University's Design Studies program wants to see you flourish.

In our three-year diploma, you will be introduced to new ways of seeing and thinking about design. You will learn how to creatively transform a message, to craft a visual statement that persuades, informs, motivates or entertains.

Guided by instructors with a wealth of design expertise, you will gain experience in a variety of mediums, such as print, illustration, photography, video and digital media, which includes website and app design. We offer a growing number of courses in user interface and user experience design.
