DIGITAL ARTS DEGREES

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES

Not many undergraduates decide to major in digital arts. Each discipline hands out about 6,200 annual undergraduate degrees; 1,650 people received a bachelor's degree in digital arts last year, making it the nation's 164th most popular subject. Full Sail University​ handed out more of those degrees than any other U.S. institution (253), and schools in Florida accounted for more degrees than any US State (542).

It is possibly difficult to root out the right college, considering 99 schools around the nation have undergrad degrees in digital arts. Undergraduate degrees in digital arts are 48.4% less widely offered than the typical subject, making it the 168th most universally offered US degree.

GRADUATE DEGREES

While slightly over 6 out of 7 degrees in digital arts last spring were four-year degrees; 13% were grad degrees. Digital arts is the 234th most popular graduate degree in the USA, with 257 degrees granted. To put that in context, digital arts is 91% less popular among master's or doctor's students than the average subject.

In Total, 1,907 students received a bachelor's or higher in digital arts last year.

ONLINE DIGITAL ARTS DEGREES

277 of those 1,907 alumni (14.5%) went through remote programs - 244 undergraduates and 33 postgrad students. As you presumably can tell, digital arts is not the most popular online subject. It's at the moment the 82nd most popular remote field, and 49.3% shy of the national average of 481 students per field. For graduate students, it's ranked 183rd, and is 94.6% below the US average (616).

Full Sail University​ awarded more online four-year degrees in digital arts than any other U.S. college (189).

Furthermore, Florida graduates more digital arts online students than any other state (191 undergrad degrees conferred last May). Florida alone accounts for 78% of the area of study's remote students.

14.8% of all undergrad degrees in digital arts are completed through remote programs, (12.8% for advanced degrees). Full Sail University's​ last undergraduate class contained a higher percentage of online digital arts majors than any other US school (5.8%). 189 students in their 3,255 student class earned an online bachelor's degree in digital arts. They offer 76% of their courses of study totally online, and had 14,908 enrolled online college students last fall. That's 75% of the student body.

There are 12 schools countrywide with a comprehensively online college degree in digital arts, making it the 168th most widely offered online degree. 12% of institutions supplying the degree even have an exclusively online option, and for each public institution granting undergraduate degree in digital arts there are 2 private institutions. Florida has the most remote programs of any state, with 4 schools to choose from.

If you want to study digital arts remotely, you might want to look at the University of Florida, as it has the 5th best digital arts program in the country. They also grant an additional 67 degrees fully remotely, so you could try classes inside other majors. Furthermore, there are 1,029 online undergrads enrolled, which is 3% of the whole student body.
