APEX classes are anything but ordinary.
Join us in a walkthrough of a typical semester.

Getting Started

Business, Technology & Communication Sector

Are you interested in a fast-paced, rapidly changing career that connects people worldwide? Designing Communication Solutions combines creativity with communications, technology and marketing to create this experience. You’ll work with organizations to prepare marketing materials while assuming the role of a “professional creative consultant.”


Designing Communication Solutions was a great experience. It offers students a glimpse into the marketing and design world. Personally, it brought home the importance of building relationships with clients so they aren't just customers.
