About the Program
Behind the evening newscast, your favorite YouTube channel, and every great print ad, poster, illustration, and photograph is some wicked technical knowledge mixed in with a fair amount of creativity.
The Mesabi Range College Graphic Design Media program prepares students for a multitude of career options in visual storytelling.
Here, you’ll start the creative career you’ve always dreamed of, or never knew you could pursue, while staying close to home and saving yourself a ton of money.
Students enrolled in this two-year program will gain experience and become proficient in industry’s cutting-edge software. Learn to shoot, cut, and edit videos using Final Cut Pro and Motion. Begin building your professional portfolio by creating exciting layouts for print and web design using Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, and Adobe Dreamweaver. Our writing, photography, and prepress printing classes prepare you for a variety of job opportunities after graduation.
Enrolled students have the option to enter into a two-year degree or diploma path at MRC.
