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 program, 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.
