Two co-op work terms included within the program will provide students with opportunities to apply their skills and knowledge as they gain real-world, professional experience in their field of study.
“The Bachelor of Design is a tremendous addition to our growing suite of career-focused degree programs, and will position graduates as future leaders in media and design, whether they choose to contribute their creative and business skills to existing agencies, or start their own business ventures,” said Conestoga President John Tibbits.
Recent graduates of three-year advanced diploma programs in Graphic Design may be eligible for advanced standing in the Bachelor of Design program after completion of a bridging module.
This newest program brings Conestoga’s bachelor’s degree program offerings to 11, including Ontario’s only college-based, accredited engineering degree. Degree studies are also available in the areas of business administration, applied technology, health information science, nursing, community and criminal justice, public relations and interior design.
All degree programs include co-op opportunities and provide students with a balance of applied and theoretical studies designed to prepare graduates to meet the challenges of the 21st century workplace.
