Associate Degree or Bachelor's Degree, That Is the Question (Part I)

A graphic design education can prove invaluable when applying for your first job as a graphic designer. Yet in addition to choosing from among the many graphic design schools available, you also have to decide which degree would best meet your needs: a 2-year associate degree or 4-year bachelor’s degree?

An associate degree usually qualifies you to begin working as an assistant to a graphic designer or for a job that only requires technical skills. The curriculum generally covers all the basic skills you need, such as:

  • Advertising
  • Color theory
  • Computer-aided drawing and digital imaging
  • Design fundamentals
  • Typography

Associate Degree Pros

  1. An associate degree takes only 2-3 years to earn, compared to the 4-5 years typical of bachelor’s degree programs.
  2. Since professional schools tend to offer these programs, you may find more evening classes offered that make it possible to continue working while earning your degree.
  3. If you didn’t do that well in high school and find yourself getting rejected from your preferred graphic design colleges, then taking two years to earn an associate degree could let you transfer to the school of your choice to complete your bachelor’s degree.
  4. Don’t have any art or design experience? Many of the top graphic design schools require some basic knowledge and your own portfolio of work in order to apply. A 2-year associate degree program gives you that experience.
  5. Tuition at community colleges tends to cost far less than tuitions at 4-year graphic design colleges.
  6. Associate degree programs often have smaller class sizes, which can translate to more personal attention from the faculty.
