Education Guys: Guide to Technical Education

Design Schools

Whether it is graphic design, fashion design, or even web design, there are things that have to be learned in a classroom setting, which is why higher education is available. Degree programs may last between 1-4 years, with master's and doctorate level education available for just about anyone. Design professionals may work in a variety of places once they have completed their education. The specific duties of each career professional may depend on the type of design that they major in, but the entire industry may require professionals to be creative and detail oriented in order to be successful at what they do. Many designers are subject to certification or licensing once their education is complete, depending on state laws and which specific type of design that they are trained for. According to BLS salaries for designers may vary greatly, and can range from as low as $30,000 or less on up to $100,000 or more annually, given the state of residency, the amount of education and experience, and the exact position of the individual. Future growth in the career is expected to do well.
