Desktop Publishing Specialists
Classes that will help you develop desktop publishing skills
include computer classes and design and art classes. Computer
classes should include both hardware and software, since
understanding how computers function will help you with
troubleshooting and knowing a computer's limits. Through
photography classes you can learn about composition, color, and
design elements. Typing, drafting, and print shop classes, if
available, will also provide you with the opportunity to gain some
indispensable skills. Working on the school newspaper or yearbook
will train you on desktop publishing skills as well, including page
layout, typesetting, composition, and working under a deadline.
