I know a few web designers who have never set food in a college or university. Is the degree really that important or do you think this is something you can teach yourself about and still get a good career?

I think that there are some free sites that allow you to design your own web page, and maybe some people learn that way. But I would think you would have to be really good and have some very nice sites to show for it, before anyone would want to hire you.

Whether or not you have a degree, it's your web design skills and your portfolio that would be the deciding factor for most employers, I would think. You could get a degree in a related field and study web design on your own. The web makes this very doable.
