For those looking for the next step after gaining their high school diploma or GED, a Bachelor of Arts (BA) is a strong option. This undergraduate degree usually takes between three and five years to complete and includes a program focus, such as computer arts.

A common question among perspective BA students is, what is a BA in Computer Arts? It is a degree that combines technological and artistic education into a single field of study. The curriculum often includes instruction in computer graphic design, video and audio production, drawing, and art history. Thus, in addition to aesthetic and creative projects, students gain experience working with the state-of-the-art technology that makes this field possible. Upon graduation, students are equipped with both technological know-how and artistic ability.

The main advantage of a BA in Computer Arts stems from this mixed technical and artistic framework. The wide range of skills that these programs provide, from software operation to the mastery of artistic techniques, prepares students for the ever-increasing number of careers calling for this combined skill set.

Enrollment and registration fees for computer arts programs will vary between countries and from school to school. The cost of a particular school's program can be found out by contacting the school's admission office.

A BA in Computer Arts is a fairly open-ended degree. There are many career options available to graduates of these programs, and as technology advances, the field continues to expand into new creative territories. The field of computer arts includes such positions as computer graphic designer for films and video games, multimedia artist, and animator. For careers as technical as these, it is vital to have the firm foundation that undergraduate training in computer arts provides.

Online programs are an especially convenient way to pursue this degree because they do not limit students geographically and can be made to fit nearly any schedule. Finding a computer arts program that matches your needs and budget may seem a daunting task, but there are resources to help. We provide a list of programs across the world, as well as an opportunity to request additional information from a given school.
