Colleges

Finding a college program at which to continue your training in one of our focus areas can be difficult. This list is an attempt to help you find potential schools for continuing your studies in Web, Graphic Design, Animation, and Video.

This is not intended to be a recommendation for any of these schools. Check the website carefully, request more information, visit the campus, and talk to staff and students. Make sure that the level of coursework is a good match for your current skills, and that it will take you to a level where you want to end up. Programs vary in quality, breadth and depth. Programs at traditional universities may not have the depth of the specialty art schools, but they do have other things going for them that you cannot get at a specialty school. There may be other factors that influence your decision as well (location, atmosphere, staff, cost, scholarships, general ed courses, etc.). Check to see what degrees they offer in your area – Associates, Bachelors, etc.
