Digital Graphic Design (Part-time studies)

School of Information and Communications Technology Advanced Certificate

Program Overview

This program is being replaced with our new Interactive Design and Technology program, but it is still available to graduates of the New Media Communications certificate program. It will be suspended effective July 1, 2020.


Digital Graphic Design is an advanced certificate program. It provides the digital graphic design skills needed to create interesting and effective graphic solutions for websites, banner ads, CD-ROMs and interactive media (such as Flash).

Building on the skills you developed in the New Media Communications certificate program (at the campus in Prince Albert or Regina), you will learn advanced skills in raster and vector graphics. You will study major artistic periods throughout history - learning their defining characteristics and creating a wide variety of works modelled after their style. You will also create a final portfolio that contains a selection of your best work.


  • Part-time studies - the courses will be offered regularly throughout the academic year
  • Full-time studies - it will be possible to complete all the courses in an academic year

Individuals who plan to take at least one more of the advanced certificates in this area (shown below), in addition to Digital Graphic Design, may wish to consider applying directly to the New Media Communications diploma program.
