Graduates are prepared for both full-time salaried and part-time jobs, internships, apprenticeships, and contract and contract-to-hire roles.
Just about every profession has been represented by our graduates, lawyers, chefs, ballet dancers, baristas, options traders, architects, preschool teachers, biologists, and many, many others. Any professional experience focused on practicing the soft skills needed for a design career — teamwork, customer service, research, storytelling, client management, project management, creative thinking, a desire to learn — is easily transferable to this course. Past experience with design helps even more, but some of our most successful graduates had no design experience before applying.
