Choosing schools for web design
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post as well as offering any advice and input that you wish to. I realize that the subject of "whether a degree is necessary to get a job in the field of web design" has already been addressed on this forum in the past, so I'll try to be more specific.
I have a B.A. in music from University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA and am currently seeking to pursue a career in web design. I've been teaching myself web design graphics design off and on for about 13 years but am really an advanced amateur.
What are some tips/guidelines/rules of thumb/general advice that anyone can offer when I'm considering schools like ITT Technical Institute, Western Career College, University of Pheonix, DeVry University, and junior colleges in search of quality education in the software and programming skills relevant to web design?
Thanks so much everyone! I really appreciate your help, and sorry for a lengthy post.
