Nevertheless, these degrees are critical to people who want to work in a variety of key positions that provide important services to the community. 

What Are the Benefits of Taking a Degree in Arts?

The benefits of Arts programs are clear. Without these programs, there would be a lack of culture, social information, and politics. In many ways, whether you are discussing the Fine Arts or if you are discussing Fashion and Design, each of these programs help to further the intellectual aspects of humans. In many ways, this type of program helps to encourage the development of human thought, feelings, and beliefs.

What Are the Types of Arts Disciplines?

A Master of Arts degree allows individuals to study in an incredibly large number of topic areas. This may include things like dance, theatre, and classical music. It also includes film studies, design, ceramics, museology, and architecture. Other areas of study include applied arts, arts studies, computer arts, television studies, and fine arts. These are all programs that lead to very successful career paths in many instances.

Why Take an Art Degree Online?

Obtaining a Masters in Arts degree online is an ideal option. Most students who complete their Bachelor in Arts enter work at that point. By taking a graduate level course in any of these arts programs online, the student can continue to focus on building their career, managing their life, and complete their education. These programs also tend to provide more opportunities for learning specializations, including in-depth studies that may not be available in all locations. Students who study online do need to have more discipline to complete coursework, but the flexibility, affordability, and versatility are all ideal.

What Are the Career Opportunities for an Arts Degree?

Depending on the type of Arts degree that the student enrolls in, there are many career paths in this field. For example, those who focus on animation and design may develop software or television programs. Those who focus on arts studies  may end up working in a museum or an art gallery.

A Master in Arts is an opportunity to expand skills and enter into more advanced career paths. Online education in this area provides the perfect path to accomplishing this.

The Visual Communication Institute HGK FHNW, in Basel offers internationally accredited curricula on the Bachelor, Master and PhD level reflecting the rich tradition of the Basel School of Design in particular and Swiss Graphic Design in general. The City of Basel, located in the trinational Rhine river valley, is a unique cultural environment with easy access to France and Germany. While our Bachelor course focuses on the students’ ability to conduct a creative process, our Master programs strive to extend the students’ individual design vocabulary and to reach a higher level of reflection through the students’ ability to include knowledge and methodologies of scientific disciplines into the creative process. We offer a Master of Arts in Visual Communication and Iconic Research and an International Master of Design, which we conduct in collaboration with the University of Illinois at Chicago. Both Master programs are based on the following assessment: In the context of the digital flood of images, expanded qualifications are required. A design practice based purely on craftsmanship or technical skills no longer meets the demands of visual communication, nor does a reflection on visual messages entirely derived from theory. Connecting design practice with iconic- and media theory, generates new qualifications in the conception and design of visual messages for the context of a current, digitalized, iconic communication.
