Alwyn’s Answer

As program requirements differ from school to school the accurate answer comes from the school you’ll attend.

As you want to follow two paths of study, you need to find a school with good if not great design and marketing programs. Be up to the demands of studying two different subjects - it could be taxing.

Makayla,
Every perfect gift is from above; God gives us certain talents and gifts. Follow the path that you feel most gifted in and work will be much more enjoyable and fulfilling. " Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6

Scott’s Answer

I've asked the exact question to some graphic designers in Boulder, CO because my daughter is interested in the same educational/career path. They answered that the number of courses are immaterial. More important is the quality of the courses, and schools, as well as apprentice opportunities and dedication to work ethic. In addition, there is a unique bond between graphic artists and those they employ that almost requires extra-sensory perception. High levels of personal empathy allow successful candidates to sense what is necessary to create a successful graphic design.

Cuong’s Answer

If you plan on minoring in graphic design, be sure to learn the basic. Typography, color theory, balance, communication, and hierarchy. Learning the basic principles of graphic design will help understand how designers work and how you can produce your own designs when you're marketing your brand.


As the courses, it varies with schools in each state. For example, in San Francisco State University, you need about 18 courses for the major of visual design, where in minoring could be 12-15 courses.
