					?About Graphic Design Schools

Once you have decided that you would like to become a graphic designer, you need to
get a college education. Without a Bachelor's Degree in graphic design, you will find
it extremely difficult to start a graphic design career. Finding the graphic design
school that is right for you can be difficult, because there are a lot of graphic design
schools to choose from.

Some graphic design schools offer certificate programs rather than degree programs.
These graphic design schools can be great if you need a quick education. However,
many graphic design firms look for graphic design resumes that list education from
prominent graphic design schools, colleges, or universities.

You can also research graphic design schools in your area through professional
associations, your local chamber of commerce, and the better business bureau. These
resources can help you gain a better understanding of the differences between the
different graphic design schools.

Additionally, online graphic design schools are not for everyone. If you learn better
by seeing, writing, reading, and doing, then online graphic design schools may be a
good choice for you. However, if you are learn better by listening, hands on
instruction, and over the shoulder instruction, you are better off attending brick and
mortar graphic design schools. Most often, brick and mortar graphic design schools
are best.

Overall, the decision of graphic design schools is up to you. The best advice is to do
your homework, research all options, and work with your high school guidance
counselors, instructors, and your parents to help you choose the graphic design
schools that will be the best fit for you and your future career as a graphic designer.
