The Graphic Communications Program

Graphic Communications is a program designed to instruct young men and women in the various aspects of the printing and publishing industries as they relate to design, pre-press, and post-press as well as the art of Screen Printing. Students will use computers utilizing software specific for design and desktop publishing, as well as pre-press operations and estimating.

The students who select Graphic Communications as their career major will receive on going instruction in personal and shop safety as well as troubleshooting and problem-solving in a realistic student/instructor/client atmosphere. Graphics students have recently partnered with students in Life Skills to run our copy center, “Paw Prints”. Lynn Tech has an articulation agreement with North Shore Community College.
