Actually there is such a degree. The School of Design here at NC State
offers a major in Graphic Design. Students work extensively with
computer graphics. Of course, the main focus is on designing pages for
adverti*ts and brochures of the such. Work is done on Macs <gulp>
using mostly Photoshop, Premier, Illustrator, Cork Express, and Macrome
Director. Yep - no Corel Draw. Maybe when they begin to realize that
with Pentium Pro's and MMX's coming out - and soon PPros with MMX,
they'll switch over to PC's instead of Macs. I hope when I transfer over
to that School in a couple of years, they'll decide by then, cause Lord
have mercy on my soul if I have to sell my PC and buy a Mac. AARRRGGH!!!
