Our Graphic Design program lets you reach higher.

Rasmussen lets you work towards your Graphic Design Bachelor's degree while completing your Graphic Design Associate’s degree. With our "laddering" approach, you can bolster your resume with our Graphic Design Associate’s degree, then once you are ready, you can transfer those initial credits to complete your Bachelor's degree. It’s both time- and money-saving. And in 2019, Associate’s degree students transferred in an average of 26 credits.2
