Inside the Program

Childhood passion turns into graphic design career 

Graphic design students are free to pursue their passions as part of their careers.

Most small children go through a phase when they're more interested in the box a toy came in than the actual toy. That fascination never went away for graphic design alumna Lauren Osoba.

Buoyed by her experience at WSU, Osoba is now a successful graphic designer and illustrator, specializing in branding and print design.


A minor in graphic design is available to any student whose major area is outside of the School of Art, Design and Creative Industries (ADCI). The minor consists of a minimum of 15 credit hours in graphic design courses, including:

  • Typography I
  • Introduction to Graphic Design
  • Graphic Design Concepts
  • Graphic Design Applications
  • One additional upper-division course


A degree in graphic design from Wichita State will help build your skills, your confidence and your portfolio—leading to careers such as creative director, advertising executive, communications professional and designer in a wide range of settings.
