Welcome to the new Tulane School of Professional Advancement.

Our name has changed from the School of Continuing Studies but our mission has stayed the same.

Associate of Arts in Digital Design

The A.A. in Digital Design is a stepping stone to a career creating print and digitally-produced visuals, including websites, corporate materials, advertisements and anywhere a message must be communicated visually. The program teaches traditional and contemporary design techniques, using industry-standard software. Courses are taught in computer labs with limited seating so that instructors can work one-on-one with students. Once the degree is earned, students can move on with their studies to earn a B.A.
