What is an associate degree in visual design? This type of program often places focus on arts that involve some sort of visual product, whether that is a tangible work made with a medium or a stage production. Students may choose to specialize in graphic design, theatre arts or visual fine arts, or they may choose to receive a general training in all aspects of the field of study. Common courses students take include color theory, photo image editing, music appreciation, typography, set construction, acting, playwriting, directing, art history or photography.

 Students who receive specialized training with an associate degree often negotiate higher wages and more employment opportunities in various industries. Graduates also typically have better discipline in their art than otherwise.

Each associate degree program in visual design may have different rates and fees due to a number of factors. The school, country, and number of courses all influence cost.

Those who pursue visual design usually look forward to a wide variety of career opportunities in a number of industries. Some choose to become art teachers, actors, commission-based artists or graphic designers, and other graduates find employment in advertising agencies, design studios, public relations firms or even their own businesses. People with a background in visual design are valued in many fields where art must be produced. An associate degree may be used as a stepping stone to complete a bachelor's degree.

Taking the time to learn your craft has never been easier with many online and global options. Start earning your associate degree in visual design, and crack open the potential of your creativity.
