An associate’s degree is the lowest degree that can be obtained at university or college. It is higher than a certificate and lower than a bachelor’s degree.

What is an Associate of Science in Design? Typically, this degree includes the study of modern graphic arts. In addition to learning advanced design software, courses may cover basic artistic topics such as principles of design, colors and typography. Programs may also include creating 3-D graphics and illustrations. This degree is recommended for students seeking to improve design skills for their career or who want to develop their skills to obtain a higher degree.

Having an Associate of Science in Design can open career opportunities in multiple fields such as architecture, marketing and the visual arts. An associate’s degree in design may also qualify you for a higher salary in your field.

Each school has a unique tuition and fee schedule that may vary by location. Such information is usually made available on their website and can help you determine the exact cost of a program.

This associate’s degree program is best suited for students who are entering the workforce or who want to become better designers in their industry. Designers are essential in every industry and often serve as key players for marketing and advertising agencies, application and video game developers and motor vehicle manufacturers. Many degree holders go on to have successful careers as independent contractors or freelancers. Alternatively, corporate companies use the skills of designers to assist them in branding strategies such as logos and ad creations. An associate’s degree in design is also helpful for those who are pursuing a career in architecture through drafting plans and designs for buildings and homes. 

A college degree can be obtained in a variety of ways. Many schools offer a combination of classroom and online credits, making college education realistic as a full or part-time student.  Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

This major provides a focused course of study for students in preparation for careers as designers of architectural projects and potential licensure as architects. Emphasis is placed on project visualization, industry-standard drawing techniques and conventions, computer-aided drafting (CAD) skills, and the specific preparation of architectural building plans. Additionally, the integral coursework includes a focus on the official code requirements necessary for residential and commercial building projects. The curriculum also includes introductory coursework in the associated fields of project engineering and construction. As a degree (in contrast to a certificate), this program requires the completion of general education courses; however, if transfer to a university for a baccalaureate or advanced degree is desired, interested students should carefully consider the specific admission and transfer requirements for individual colleges and universities. This program is not designed to fulfill the most common requirements for transfer to a university in architecture; please refer to the Associate of Science Degree in Architecture for such preparation. -

NHCC’s Graphic Design program starts with a fine arts foundation that gives students handson experience with design concepts. Drawing, painting, color theory, photography, dimensional design (2D, 3D) and art history classes help students to begin thinking like designers, with or without a computer. Of course, as foundation skills are gained, graphic design courses then emphasize industry standard digital tools and software (Apple computers, Adobe Creative Suite) to harness design thinking and developing technical skills for more advanced concepts and projects. -
