You Already Dig Technology & Design - Why Not Make It a Career?

If you’re someone who adores computers and geek speak, or loves to create amazing things with your mind and sense of adventure, a School of Technology & Design degree program could be for you. You’re already online and enjoy it, so why not make a career of it? With an online IT degree or online design degree, the opportunity to find the career you’ve always dreamed of (or, heck, never even thought about) is just clicks away. Online technology and design degrees are aplenty and include those in digital design and animation, as well as game and simulation programming. 

What other Online Technology Degree Options are There?
Associate’s degrees are another online avenue you can take, and you can often get an online Associate’s degree in as little as two years. Two years! Think about where you are today and where you could be after just 24 or so turns of the calendar. Online Associate’s degrees in technology and design include information systems management, where you can specialize in computer information technology, database administration, network administration and Web programming, among others. You can also get an online Associate’s degree in multimedia technologies (think digital design and Web design) and software systems design (embedded systems anyone?).

Game and Simulation Programming - What’s It’s About
Fellow gamers unite! CNET[1] reports that the video game industry recently had its best month ever in terms of sales. What’s this mean to the value of having an online game design degree, game programming degree or even an animation degree? Well, you can be on the path to a career in a thriving industry that relies on creative minds and those who think outside the box, er, video game console. If your name belongs on this list, a game design degree online could be just right for you.

How can I Find the Time for Online IT Degrees and Design Degrees?
To say life can be hectic is an understatement, but when it comes to bettering your education, finding the time should be near front of mind. One of the optimal benefits of online degree programs – whether they’re IT degrees or graphic design degrees – is that you can craft the schedule that works for you. If you have a family and little time during the week but plenty of time on weekends, or if you have a job that leaves little flexibility from week to week, having the option to get your degree online and without the hassle of a commute, navigating a campus and everything that goes along with it is invigorating.
