Online Associate of Arts Degrees

Online Associate’s degrees in Art and Design are increasingly common because they offer you the opportunity to enter the world of professional art while continuing to work. For example, earning your web design associate’s degree online allows you to work a regular job during the day – perhaps in a related job like printing – while studying for your associate’s in the evening. Earning an art and design associate’s degree online can increase your financial security as well; the U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that holding an associate’s degree means earning almost $10,000 more annually compared to someone with only a high school diploma.

Sample Degree – Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in
Graphic Design

This program generally takes two years of full-time study and prepares you for entry-level work in advertising, illustration, page layout or website design. Most students who earn an AAS design degree enter the workforce after graduation instead of going on to a four-year institution.
