There is always talk about whether or not you need to have a degree when aspiring to have a career in an art field (photographer, film maker, editor, etc…). I just read an article from the SFGate that gives the pros and cons about getting a graphic design degree. I think both sides carry very valid points.
The pros are that the degree gives you a competitive edge in today’s industry, a higher earning potential, and you are taught professional techniques and skills when working with clients.
The con is, of course, the cost of school. You could leave school with an average of $24,000 of debt. Clients have said that if the graphic designer’s work stands out enough on its own, then they care little about a degree.
So what do you think? Degree or no degree? We are curious to see more points of views!
