Visual Communication and Technology Education Faculty Publications

 
VCT majors use print, photography, video, and interactive multimedia as problem-solving tools in a variety of work settings. With solid preparation and study in each of these areas, the major is complemented by a core of business and liberal arts classes, which differentiate BGSU’s program from most others of its kind. The major also offers a combination of theory and hands-on practice, including the opportunity to work with personable faculty who are committed to ensuring each student's success.
