CCAC offers three design programs: one degree and two certificates. Whether you’re fresh out of high school or looking to advance your career, we have the program for you.

All design students have access to the latest technology, including a dedicated Apple computer lab with industry-standard software, as well as photography equipment and color printers. Plus, unlike at other colleges and universities, CCAC students can bring their projects to life with unlimited printing.
