Advanced Typography Certificate

I’m on my second course on this program, this is the program overview:
The graduate of the Advanced Typography program should be able to achieve upper-level typographic and design employment. Because the program covers the range of the profession, from theoretical and historical issues to letterform design, graduates will be exposed to numerous specializations within the field. Upon completion, graduates will be skilled in letterform design, information design, book design, magazine design, history of typography, typographic theory, and typographic research and writing.

Curriculum Structure
Each class in the Advanced Typography program meets once a week for 4 hours over a 12-week term, equaling 48 contact hours per class. The program is comprised of 8 subjects, totaling 384 instructional hours. Students must complete and pass all courses for completion and certification. 

Our instructors are internationally recognised professionals with extensive abilities, industry awards, and academic recognition.

    At the beginning of this category you state: “I’m on my second curse on this program…”

    Freudian slip or intentional? I can well remember some courses I cursed at during school. Smile.

    Congratualations on your work. It’s excellent.

      Hi Clint, Hehehe, I was not intentional!
      But maybe my subconscious was playing bad jokes on me…
      Thanks a lot for your commentary!
