The relocation to our new Tacoma location is designed to position our College for long-term growth, and to give our students greater access to both resources and career development opportunities. The move to Tacoma allows the College to continue to serve the Kitsap Peninsula while effectively and dramatically expanding our footprint and reach into Pierce, Thurston, Mason, and King Counties.
The College will continue to offer our Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Visual Communication degree program at the new Tacoma location, and has received accreditation approval to offer five new Associate of Occupational Studies (AOS) programs that are scheduled to start in September 2018.
Our BFA in Visual Communication degree program offers double majors in the following areas: Entertainment Art, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interactive Design, and Motion Design.
Our new AOS degrees are in Graphic Design, Web Design, Web Development, User Experience (UX) Design, and Concept Art. They are stand-alone 16-month degree programs, and are designed to be highly concentrated, highly challenging 2-academic year programs for those seeking to enter the creative workforce as soon as possible.
