Over the next several years, the demand for talented graphic artists is expected to grow in the advertising, publishing and computer design industries. To help meet the need for designers, online university College America has announced the creation of its online graphic arts degree program.

The program, which boasts that it can accommodate all skill levels, will feature courses in webpage and graphic design, that will use leading industry tools like flash typography, JavaScript, animation and Photoshop.

College America created the program to help student designers enter the world of professional graphic design – an industry that the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects to grow 10 percent by the year 2016, citing an increased emphasis on web-based content and marketing ventures.

In-class instruction is also available for the baccalaureate degree program, with open enrollment for classes taking place each month and financial aid opportunities available.

"Graphic designers are expected to face keen competition for available positions," claims the BLS. "Individuals with a bachelor''s degree and knowledge of computer design software, particularly those with website design and animation experience will have the best opportunities."
