Second, there's identifying which schools have affordable online programs in the field, and which programs make the most sense for you. The following page highlights some of today's top colleges and universities with quality degree programs in multiple arts disciplines, and provides an in-depth guide for anyone looking to learn more about higher education in these diverse fields.



Graphic Design Certificate programs

Graphic Design is a great college major to consider pursuing at an online school because most of your classes will involve using computers and the internet. Distance education allows you to become more familiar with computers and to heighten your technical skills as you apply your creativity to projects in print, multimedia, web, and other design projects. The trouble with so many schools today, however, is that their tuition costs are increasingly unaffordable. Distance education options are often better, but even then a degree is sometimes out of reach for students.

To help you make the best choice for you, a list has been compiled for the most affordable online Graphic Design degree programs. The process included first researching all of the accredited Graphic Design programs in the country that:

1) Offer certified programs

2) Can be taken entirely online.

This foundation was then used as a basis for establishing the institutes with the lowest tuition rates. But fear not - these institutes are of great quality, too. Read on to discover which one will help you kick start your career in Graphic Design.
