Graphic design programs are expensive.
The average cost for a bachelor’s degree is more than $50,000, according to the Institute for College Access & Success (ICAAS).
The average costs for a master’s degree are $80,000.
According to the International Academy of Graphic Design, the average cost of a graduate degree is $85,000 and the average costs of an associate degree are around $100,000—compared to $50-100,00 for the undergraduate.
The most common types of graphic design programs include: Design for Digital Web and Print, Graphic Design for Visual Applications, Graphic Architecture for Design, and Graphic Design and Digital Media.
According the U.S. Department of Education, the annual cost of the degree is between $50 and $75,000 per year, depending on the program and the student.
Designing for Digital Websites The cost for design for digital web sites is similar to that of designing for print.
For instance, the U of W has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Design with a cost of $50 to $100 per year.
The U of S has a Master of Fine Art in Design, with a projected cost of up to $90,000 for a full-time degree.
Design for Print and Illustration The cost to design for print is considerably lower, at $20 to $25 per year per student.
Illustration is an alternative to design because the student will have a more solid background in graphic design.
In addition, the cost for an illustration degree is lower than design because a student has a background in art history.
In the case of a Master in Illustration, the final cost will be closer to $60,000 depending on what degree the student is pursuing.
Design in Graphic Design The cost associated with design in graphic, design, or interactive media is also much lower than the cost of design for printed materials.
Design is an art form.
According a study conducted by a design school, the most expensive design degree is a bachelor of fine arts degree.
The cost per student is about $35,000 with a maximum cost of more than 50,000 if the student pursues an associate or doctoral degree.
While the average final cost of an undergraduate degree is around $60-70,000 based on the amount of students completing the degree, the maximum cost is $100-150,000 on an associate, doctoral, or master’s level.
The overall cost of this type of design program is much lower compared to other kinds of degree programs, such as those offered by universities.
Graphic Design programs that are based on digital media and interactive design will be a very appealing option for students who want to make graphic design a career path.
They can earn a lot of money from the coursework they take, which can be invaluable in securing work and earning a decent salary, if not a living wage.
