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

In our four-year degree, 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. A balance of practice-based, hands-on research and theory-driven coursework prepares you to design effectively and solve communication problems to improve people’s lives.

Students can focus in visual communication design or user experience design or a combination of courses that suits their own interests. This program provides the option to exit with a diploma after the completion of the first two years.
