I obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) from a 4-year school. I got to experience fine arts training as well as computer-based design training. We learned art and design fundamentals and, importantly, learned how to be visual problem-solvers. I have worked in many different industries with that degree (publishing, museums, product design firm, ad agency, technology company). The basic design training I got made all those industries accessible to me, because I left school with a solid portfolio, had internship experiences, and knew how to apply design skills to real-world problems--no matter what kind! Technology will always change--the tools you use will change along with it. But learning design thinking and methods will last your entire career.
