The Illustration Advanced Professional Certificate is a two-year 60-credit studio-intensive program.
This is a 60-credit certificate program. The curriculum is designed for students who already have a Bachelor’s Degree (BA, BS, or BFA in any major) and wish to pursue a professional career as an illustrator.
Students with no previous art experience may take required foundation prerequisites before or concurrent with the program. The curriculum is a combination of coursework and experiential learning via dynamic internships in the field.
Students pay the tuition and fees designated for undergraduate programs within the College of Art and Design. Review the approximate cost for an Advanced Professional Certificate in Illustration.
