Graphics - Printing Production
Printing Production is designed to prepare students to enter the graphic arts/printing profession as offset printing press operators. Some might think of it as boot camp for printers. Included with the thorough study and hands-on experience of the printing press, printing production students will also be exposed to the fundamentals of graphic design allowing them a better understanding of the discipline that generates the work that is targeted for the printing press. These students will also get a basic background in prepress which will assist them in their communications with the area that works in concert with printing.
This degree also provides the groundwork for print management training. A second two-year business degree or transfer to a 4-year school to study business is recommended for those seeking a career in the administrative area of the printing industry.
