Graphic Design Certificates and Certifications
Licensed schools such as American Graphics Institute offer certificate programs that teach the skills necessary to work as a modern graphic designer. Having a professional certificate provides employers and clients with confidence that you have invested time and effort into learning skills from a reputable school.
Both part-time and full-time design certificate programs are available in a range of graphic design related areas:
These certificate programs can be completed online or in-person at an AGI campus, so you can choose the arrangement that best suits your needs. A graphic design certificate program ranges from between 60 to 110 hours of class time, depending upon the certificate program. Full time participants can complete programs in weeks or months, rather than years. All of our graphic design certification programs are led by instructors with real-world experience in the field, so you'll receive a quality education with hands-on experience.
Many graphic designers start their careers in different fields and then gain necessary design and technical skills to start a new career in graphic design. If you already have an Associate's or Bachelor's degree, a certificate may be all you need for a graphic design role, rather than re-starting the college process again.
