The IDEA program is a highly regarded 3-year diploma in illustration and design. One of IDEA’s strengths is its unique dual curriculum in design and illustration. Another is its faculty, most of whom are professionals working in the industry. The curriculum is current with today’s industry standards, and the graduates are second to none when it comes to being ready to move into the professional world.

In 2014 the IDEA program began transitioning to a four year Bachelor of Design in Visual Communication. All the qualities that have made the IDEA program and its graduates a success will remain, enriched by additional opportunities for more in-depth study.
