The Internet has fundamentally changed the world. It has also fundamentally changed the world of design – in order to create these interactive experiences, individuals need a new technological skillset to succeed in this arena.
In the Web Design Diploma program at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online Division, students are provided with the basics of Web site design, graphics and animation developed specifically for the Internet.
Depending on level of specialty, graduates are prepared to pursue entry-level positions in many areas of Web-related businesses such as:
- Web Site Designer
- Information Designer
- Web Animator
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), “Employment of graphic designers is projected to increase by 13 percent from 2010 to 2020, about as fast as the average for all occupations. […] With the increased use of the Internet, designers will be needed to create designs and images for portable devices, websites, electronic publications, and video entertainment media.”
The BLS also notes, “Many talented individuals are attracted to careers as graphic designers. Prospects will be best for job applicants with website design and other interactive media experience.”
