The Center for Art & Design Receives National Re-accreditation
The College has proven it meets all of the highest standards for preparing art and design students to work as professionals in the visual arts.
Saint Rose art and design faculty believe that the best graphic design program is one that finds an ideal balance between art and usability, and helps you apply those lessons practically and personally, to your own talents and goals.
Saint Rose has produced some of the finest graphic designers in the industry—a fact recognized by both Graphic Design USA and the NY Art Directors’ Club—for those very reasons: a balanced program that marries design foundations and theory with professional, practice-ready projects.
We pride ourselves on creating an intimate class environment that offers individual attention for every student and building a powerful reputation and alumni network, both of which have opened doors for our graduates and result in some of the industry’s highest job and grad school placement rates.
That blend of small classes, big ideas, and proven outcomes has led to multiple-award-winning work, and propelled our graduates to their dream jobs in: advertising, publishing, entertainment design, web design, web animation, creative art direction, and every design role —including heading up their own design firm.

Farrah Mills, graphic design ’18, won gold at the American Advertising Federation’s American Advertising Awards in New Orleans on June 10. Farrah is the only entrant from the local district – student or professional – to win gold at the national level this year. She created an integrated branding campaign for Backwood Brews, a fictitious brewery, coffee roaster and restaurant.
I am still in awe over this happening, and I cannot thank Saint Rose enough, most importantly the art department for having such amazing and supportive design educators.”
Graphic Design students are asked to design and prototype a user interface for an augmented reality application that delivers layered information to the user. Tim James ’19 created a golfing analysis app that assists the golfer and the coach when analyzing the swing of the athlete. The app tracks the motion of the body and captures that information and presents it to the user through a screen-based interface. The coach can then make recommendations to the golfer to make corrections to his swing.
Our faculty are committed to your ability to act creatively, think critically, and make lasting contributions as innovative artists, designers, educators, scholars, and leaders.
