I would like to take a few classes in design but I don't want a BA. I would rather just take a quick certificate program because it should be cheaper.

Are there online schools that provide programs like this?

I was looking for something just like this, but not flash or dreamweaver or any other software centric courses, but more of a general design feel.

everyone always wants it quick and cheap. You would be better off to get a well rounded education. Go for a liberal arts education and major in visual arts with a specialty in computer generated graphics.

This will give you the background necessary to fit in socially with others in the field. as well as give you many networking opportunities that may pay off hugely in the future.

If you have a community or junior college nearby, you should check to see if they offer classes in the type of design courses you are looking for. At least in my area it seems the community colleges are the ones with the best selection of courses in the arts.

I agree with you, but sometimes it's just not possible to fit in a normal education schedule in your life. I have 2 children for whom I stay home at the moment, and if I ever get the chance to study in the US they will have to come with me, but then my hubby would have to stay home to take care of them.
If I would have been a single mom no way I would have been able to get a normal education, simply because someone has to take care of my kids.
I'm 24 and my children were both planned, but sometimes things just can't be planned!

Hey, I find design classes interesting too. Web design is very useful.
actually you don't need to search further, it is advertised in this website. Check The Art Institute. It offers Diploma in Web Design. Check it out!

Community college is the way to go. Little financial outlay so you don't cry so much if you don't like it, and you can transfer your credits to a college or U if you do. My advice is to do your gen. ed. requirements at C.C. and your core curriculum at a 4-yr.

There are lots of certificate courses that run from 1-2 weeks. They provide sufficient information given the short period of time, although I'm not sure if these are offered online. Check out your nearest school if they have certificate courses for you.
