Graphic and Printing Science

Tammi Smith
Academic advisor for graphic and printing science.

Welcome! I am looking forward to hearing from you regarding your interest in our graphic and printing science program. Our educational objective is to enable you to become a job-ready graduate by acquiring the technical skills, knowledge and experience required for a beginning professional working in the printing, imaging and inks industries. You will specialize in learning digital printing, color management, communication, computer graphics, and business applications.

Don't worry, however. You do not have to decide on your area of study until you feel comfortable. We'll expose you to the common courses first and then in consultation with me, you'll be able to make an informed decision about your options, at the latest, by your sophomore year in college. I look forward to welcoming you soon to the graphic and printing science program at Western Michigan University!
