Earn Your Online Doctoral Degree in Art and Design

Online art doctorates and design doctorates have become increasingly popular because they offer you the opportunity to enhance your career while continuing to work. For example, earning your Doctor of Architecture (D. Arch) degree online allows you to work full time during the day – probably as a professional architect – and study when your schedule allows. An online Doctoral degree in Art can increase your financial security as well; the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics estimates that professionals with a doctorate earn up to $30,000 more annually when compared to someone with only a bachelor’s degree.

Sample Degree – Doctor of Architecture (D. Arch)

The Doctor of Architecture (D. Arch) degree – also called an Architectural Doctorate (Arch D.) – is a doctoral degree in the field of architecture. It can be completed after either a Bachelor of Architecture (B. Arch) or Master of Architecture (M. Arch) degree. Some universities offer graduates of 3.5 year M. Arch programs a title upgrade to D. Arch.
