Graphic designers, as experts in graphic communication, are responsible for finding appropriate formulas for any situation where a need for information and communication arises, with solutions that take into account attractiveness, graphic and ideographic aptness and technical, production, economic, environmental and sociocultural viability.

In addition to having in-depth knowledge of the elements and industrial means that allow the production of graphic forms, they must also be qualified for interdisciplinary work, collecting information and communicating ideas.

By the same token, they must be capable of generating and communicating proposals that enrich the sociocultural milieu and are in tune with the sensibility of the target group.

The academic qualification obtained upon successfully completing this program of study is equivalent, to all effects, to a 3-year university degree or diplomatura.
