Westwood College Online today announced the launch of a new online magazine produced by its School of Design students and faculty.

WOL | DESIGN | ONLINE | Magazine may be the first of its kind in Design Education. The 166-page publication was designed and produced by Westwood Online students and faculty during an online course symposium.

“I congratulate these pioneers in their efforts in creating this first-class, first edition magazine of such professional quality. It is a testimony to the caliber of the programs we offer in our School of Design,” said Scott Cousino, president of Westwood College Online.

The magazine showcases the work of students from each program within the School of Design: Graphic Design (AAS), Visual Communications, Web Design & Multimedia, Animation, Game Arts, and Interior Design. Westwood College Online offers bachelor’s degrees in each of these fields. The magazine also features articles about outstanding faculty members and insights from other departments within the school.

“Besides showcasing excellent student work, the magazine is a benefit to the school since our Admissions Department can use it to show prospective School of Design students the actual work and professional outcomes of our graduates,” said John Hebard, M.Ed., program director for Westwood College Online School of Design.

Students selected for the project were in classes that graduated in March or May 2008, and they had to have a grade point average of 3.0 or above. Students were required to submit three examples of their work for review prior to publication.

The magazine was produced in partnership with Corbis.com and Microtek.

The premiere issue of the magazine is available on Westwood College Online’s website at http://www.westwoodonline.edu or http://www.westwood.edu.
