Why Choose Digital Design at Wright State?

Digital design can be considered the next evolution of graphic design. A career in digital design allows you to bring visions to life with interactivity, three-dimensional modeling, and animation. Whether you’re creating banner ads, movies, or other interactive elements of a webpage or app, you’ll be sharing messages with an audience using modern methods that rely on data to measure your success.

The Bachelor of Technical Applied Studies degree in the digital design program prepares you for employment as a designer by combining aspects of print design with various types of interactive media like audio, images, kinetic text, vectors, and video with special effects to communicate information to an audience.

At Wright State, you can earn your degree in digital design on your terms, in your own time, and at an affordable cost. Choose to complete your courses in person, online, or a combination of both. We offer you the flexibility you need, from start to finish. 

Wright Path students and students transferring with an associate's degree from another college can complete their bachelor's degree in as little as four semesters. Transfer scholarships are available.
