Not Sure Which Design Program Is Right for You?

A good place to start is asking yourself what aspect of design interests you most. Do you aspire to create and combine multiple forms of media to generate animation and motion-based projects? If so, our Animation and Motion Graphics specialization can help develop your specific skill set.

Or are you more interested in designing dynamic user interfaces and engaging websites, print and typographic layouts? Our Web and Interactive Design specialization may be the perfect path for you. Both of these specializations are available at the Associate's degree and Bachelor's degree level to fit your graphic design career goals.

  1. Savings calculated from students enrolled at Rasmussen College who utilized Flex Choice® Credit by Assessment, which were offered for no additional charge when taken concurrently with traditional courses from May 2014 to January 2018. When completed, assessments reduced the number of traditional courses students were required to complete as part of their program. From the launch of Flex Choice Credit by Assessment in May 2014 through January 2018, 8,297 courses have been completed. Calculation: 8,297 courses x 3.2 credits per course = 26,550 credits. Cost per credit $250 x 26,550 credits = $6,637,500 in savings in the last four years. Since January 2017, we’ve been charging $99 per attempt 10,280 attempts since January 2017 x $99 = $1,017,720 in revenue. $6,637,500 savings - $1,017,720 revenue = $5,619,780 saved.
