Computer graphics courses
BMGT 458Q is the computer graphics course that all SDF students must take. Course work includes creating your personal brand identity, a magazine layout and a poster—all using Creative Adobe CS’s Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator. Incoming SDF students who can demonstrate proficiency in these applications will be excused from the course but are expected to take BMGT 458R.
BMGT 458R was added a few years ago to accommodate incoming students with advanced computer graphics skill sets and those in the program who after taking 458Q wanted to continue to advance their skills in this area. It is encouraged that students take the Advanced Computer Graphics course to take full advantage of the educational opportunities that this program offers. Students will learn UX/UI with Figma, create animation with After Effects and develop a digital campaign using Premiere.
When chosen to be in the program, SDF faculty expect that you will complete BMGT 458B, the capstone course. Each year, we accept a limited number of seniors who complete the program in one semester.
Completing the program
Attendance in class and extracurricular learning experiences
SDF faculty expect you to attend class regularly. Absences should be excused. Extracurricular learning experiences are created to enhance the SDF student experience and attendance is expected with exceptions when we travel outside of the Washington/College Park area.
SDF students will be introduced to a variety of marketing and design professionals as guest speakers and judges. SDF faculty expect students to be attentive and interactive during presentations and take advantage of these networking opportunities by showing appreciation to the guest speakers for their time and expertise that they share with the students.
