Graphic Design Student Experience

“Not only has my instructor previously taught at an art institute, classes are small enough for constant personal interaction between teachers and student. EAC's tuition is lower than other graphic design programs in the country, providing students with an affordable, quality education that can't be found anywhere else.”

- Wendy Wolslagel

“A smart, affordable choice for starting a career as a graphic
designer. The courses are set up to inform and inspire you to
become proficient in several design programs ... Coming to EAC
was the best decision I could have made. The instructors
pass on knowledge of design techniques, styles, and
programs. They work with the community on
where the jobs are and what employers
are expecting from new designers.
The program has given me
the confidence and
skills necessary
to get started as a
professional designer.”

- Devin Cameron
