Commencing in the Fall 2019 Semester, students seeking coursework in graphic design or photography will be required to have a laptop capable to run specified Adobe software.
Use the Recommended Specifications for InDesign if student plans on mainly studying basic graphic design and/or photography practices. Use the Recommended Specifications for Premiere Pro if student also plans on taking classes in video editing. It is highly suggested that laptops meet the Recommended Specifications, not minimum. Minimum requirements will work, but much more slowly, and may become frustrating to students at times.
