Online Graphics & Multimedia Degrees and Careers


If you grew up loving cartoons, you grew up in the world of graphics. From the beginning of animation -- multiple frames in which only the characters' mouths moved -- to today's world, the industry has undergone a sea change. Today's animators are graphics and multimedia workers, who create special effects using computer graphics, or who create video games or commercials. In addition to the ability to draw, graphics and multimedia artists need to be able to work with color, computer programs, photography and understand the basics of animation.

Education & Career Opportunities in Graphics & Multimedia

A bachelor's degree is usually the first step toward getting started as a graphic designer or in multi-media positions.
