Here is the official description of the course:
JRN 302 Introduction to Graphics and Visual Communication 3(3-0) F, Sp
Principles and techniques of publication/advertising graphics and visual communication, including typography and the printing process
Basically it's a newspaper/magazine/misc publication design course. It has a ton of lab work focused on Quark Express. (Which is an awesome program, btw) I've designed book covers, schedules of events, magazine covers, magazine spreads, fliers, and newspapers. It's fun stuff, almost makes me wish I was heading into that field. This class is required for my minor, but doesn't have much to do with it.
