SUMMARY

Studying Web Design is a valuable choice and naturally a critical first step for undergraduates planning to pursue a career as a web developer, a web application developer, or a web graphic designer. Interestingly, web design is a ​unique degree coming in at the 193rd most popular major. Last academic year alone, there were 1,227 web design graduates. In-state tuition for web design at private schools is, on average, 2.9 times more spendy than their public fellows.

With only 119 schools having programs for this degree you might have a smaller selection of institutions that will have an option for you. If you're hoping to surround yourself with other web design undergraduates, look at schools in New York which have the most undergrads admitted to web design annually. More generally, the best region to major in web design is in the Mid East region with The New School, School of Visual Arts, and Duquesne University best representing the region. Interestingly, our selection of the top conference to major in web design is the Pacific-12 Conference with University of Arizona representing the conference. That said, our selection for the best school for web design is Santa Clara University. You may also want to check out our list of the best colleges.

The objectively best school does not mean it is the 'best' school for every student. There can be a bunch more factors to think about when deciding on school. Things such as campus amenities, transportation services, and food could refashion your decision of where to go to university. Here at authority.org, we evaluated the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which web design school is home to the best campus, the answer is School of Visual Arts. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which school is home to the best campus, we have an entire list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through government databases, professor reviews, student reviews, and more so we can compare each major in an unbiased and informative way. You can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the best student life&nbsphere and from that list, our selection of the university with the best student life for web design is Duquesne University. Are you curious why? Continue reading to learn more about our top choices. Some of our decisions just might surprise you.

If price is a primary factor in your choice of where you attend school, you might be cautious about Santa Clara University. Santa Clara University&nbspis our most expensive school for web design, at least for out of state students. We do have an entire list of the most expensive&nbspuniversities that might put the price tag of Santa Clara University&nbspinto perspective. You could also be interested to know that web design is the 354th most expensive major in the US, with an average associated cost of $19,300. To zoom out a little, the most costly state for web design in the country is Massachusetts with tuition and fees at the primary university, Hampshire College, of $50,030. Even more broadly, the most expensive region of the country for web design is unfortunately unavailable due to missing data.

Our cheapest region for web design is the Great Lakes region which is represented by Baker College with a cost of $9,720, Franklin University with a cost of $9,552, and University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with a cost of $15,402. More optimistically, the most affordable school for web design is Brigham Young University-Idaho. Authority's entire list of the most affordable universities can be explored here.

In-state students can anticipate paying about $9,200 for a degree in web design. That price balloons by a lot to a median of $21,800 for an out-of-state public-school student. As such, you might be interested in our choice for the school representing the best value for web design: Santa Clara University. Here you will find our comprehensive list of the universities we believe to be the best value&nbspin general. That being said, this discussion is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, but we do not know in which states any one student has residency.

Earnings for web design students can cover a wide range, but two years after completing the major students will often earn around $71,200. While there can be a lot of variation in earnings potential; top positions can experience pay up to $107,000. Straight out of school, the lowest end jobs within the web design field earn $47,200, which could be worse. The top earning grads for web design graduated from Santa Clara University&nbspand if you are looking for colleges with all of the highest earning graduates, we have that too.

The prevailing diversity of web design ranks very highly, being within the 96th percentile of majors nationally. The college with the most composite diversity for web design is Academy of Art University&nbspand here you can find our comprehensive list of the colleges which have the most diversity. The financial diversity of the Web Design major only is within the 77th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, ranking in the 92nd percentile. Students who are not white, black, latino, or asian make up the largest proportion at 38% of scholars studying web design. Additionally, 59% of undergraduates pursuing a web design major are women.

The median ranking of web design professors is 4.7 stars, a ranking that is 17% greater than the average score for every major; which is a remarkably good ranking. If you are interested in the most popular web design professor nationally, take a look at Jason Roberts at Cosumnes River College. This may come as a shock, but the highest rated professors of web design from student rankings come from Cosumnes River College. If we consider data beyond just rankings it becomes clear that the university possessing comprehensively the best instructors for web design is Santa Clara University. You can find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, as well as many of the top examples of instructors in the U.S.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for web design is Hampshire College. While we are unsure why you would be interested, we do have a comprehensive list of the hardest colleges to get into. Although, we do hope you believe that considering university with a perspective mainly shaped by superlatives might create problems. We hope you read our other pages on individual schools and peruse a couple of our informative background pages on useful details to look for as your university search develops.
