Ready for a change?

The Certified Graphics & Web Professional (CGWP) program at Bridgewater State University is a unique series of hands-on, real-world, creative and extremely informative graphic design classes and web design classes. This certificate work-study course has been developed specifically for people seeking to enter the graphic design and web design field in less than a year.

Work Hard. Reap the Rewards.

The CGWP is an intense 39-week, 245 contact-hour program that teaches you the skills and concepts required to develop high-end, professional-quality illustrations, layouts and web sites. Within that timeframe, you’ll completely transform your skill set by learning advanced design principles and techniques for both print and the Internet, and become proficient in the programs graphic designers and web designers use.

We’re not your typical classroom.

No need to dust-off (or purchase!) textbooks. Independent projects and hands-on labs and training are the cornerstone of CGWP. You’ll advance through a strategically developed curriculum that helps you hone your skills as well as create strong portfolio pieces.

Don’t take our word for it…

For years, students have graduated from CGWP with more than a piece of paper: they’ve had a life-long transformation in their future and careers. Here’s what they’re saying about the program.
