What is an online bachelor’s in visual design? These programs are intended to cover the development and refinement of practical design skills through projects and the study of art theory. Students have the opportunity to explore fine art activities such as drawing, photography, sculpture, painting, digital imaging and 3D installation.

With the specialized guidance of a tutor and virtual discussions with peers, students are encouraged to create a portfolio showcasing a variety of work in visual arts.

Visual design degrees can be applied to many different career areas. Understanding how to apply theoretical research to projects, learning how to present and market designs, and practicing aesthetic problem solving are some valuable skills that students can use to gain an edge in a competitive market and secure higher paying jobs.
