Top Ranked Graphic Design Program

CU Denver’s Digital Design landed among the top 15% of public universities in the U.S. (#33) according to Animation Career Review. The 2023 program rankings listed CU Denver’s program as:

  • #1 in Colorado among private and public schools
  • #33 nationally among public schools
  • #9 among schools in the Southwest

 

In Visual Arts at CU Denver, the city becomes our canvas, industry leaders become professors and a passion becomes a profession. We do our best work designing in a digital lab or putting paint to canvas in a studio. Our students have access to state-of-the art digital labs, sculpture studios, industrial equipment and darkrooms. They find opportunities at the Denver Art Museum, in galleries across the Front Range and at digital studios like Pixar. That’s how the College of Arts & Media unites the ability to create with the means to succeed.
