Individuals who have a passion for graphic design may want to pursue a postsecondary degree in order to land a job in the industry. Online programs are ideal for people who lack the time to attend classes in between working full-time and maintaining other obligations.

Recently, Stevens-Henager College announced that it will begin offering a bachelor's of science degree in graphic design for individuals who are looking to study from the comfort of their own home. Previously, an associate's degree program in graphic design had been offered online for aspiring artists. Following its success, the College of California-San Diego affiliate has decided to provide the program for students looking to earn degrees in 36 months or less.

Students who enroll in classes at Stevens-Henager College will be exposed to design programs, such as Photoshop and Flash, in order to expand their knowledge on the industry. The goal is to prepare individuals for a career by educating them on both the business side and creative angle of graphic design.

Employment in the graphic design industry is predicted to increase by 13 percent over the next eight years, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
