The subject of design is a broad degree related to the professional combination of interests in categories of graphic or illustration production, web design and development, fashion or textile creation, building design, architecture and photography or interior design. The formal education that a design degree can provide will narrow the field of study while equipping students with the practical and theoretical skills needed to enter into a successful career. Most design graduate students will have specialized interest in a particular area, additionally many higher education institutions offer a general overview of the degree as a minor.

A design degree can provide students with a multi-faceted transferable skill set, which many employers see as a valuable ability when presented with the occasion to think creatively and deliver clever ideas. The professionalism of obtaining a degree in design will refine other skills required for resourcefulness, motivation, decision-making and team work. As a professional designer, the opportunity to affect what consumers see, touch, read, and feel in respect to the targeted audience, expands the creative population and drives economic success.

Design graduates are of interest to industries that use advertising, multimedia, broadcasting, publishing or promotions. A well designed product or advertising campaign can bring unprecedented profits or can wreak havoc on a company’s reputation; it is the responsibility of the design team to take into consideration the factors of demographics and cultural standards. Students with a passion for designing tend to follow a particular concentration to reflect future career aspirations and personal goals.
