Individuals who have a talent for graphic design may be able to earn a job in the industry by obtaining a postsecondary education. Earning a degree from the graphic design program at Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) may be the ideal opportunity for a person to launch a career in the industry.

The MCTC program combines graphic design with print elements, according to City College News. Individuals who choose to enroll in the program can learn more about what goes into the print production of advertisements and brochures. The goal of MCTC is to provide graduates with the knowledge they need to make a positive impact on the industry once they enter the workforce.

"Class sizes are around 20 to 30 depending on the class, which allows increased personal attention from the teachers and the ability to get to know the rest of the students better," MCTC student Kate Hartman told the news source.

Employment of graphic designers is predicted to increase by 13 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. By earning a postsecondary education, individuals can appeal to employers and land a job in the industry of graphic design.
