For many of our graduates, MacEwan University's Design Studies program is a first step toward a life-long involvement in the world of design. Whether you decide to continue your studies or pursue a profession, you leave the program with the training and experience you need to take that important next step.
Pursue a profession
With our close ties to industry, it is not surprising that most of our graduates find design-related work within two years of graduation. Some work in large agencies, others in small studios or communications departments. Yet others strike out on their own, as freelance designers or photographers.
As a MacEwan Design Studies grad, you are well-prepared for a range of design responsibilities, which might include:
Electronic pre-press production
