To serve the need for tailored programs that build specific demonstrable proficiencies in a flexible, self-paced environment, Sessions College for Professional Design (“Sessions”) has created additional opportunities for customization of its award-winning Professional Certificates in design.

“The Professional Certificate series offer busy working professionals a way to upskill and become more competitive in a robust creative industry.” stated Jessica De La Garza, Senior Director of Admissions. “These programs are flexible enough to accommodate adult learners from all walks of life with varying established skills.”

Programs in graphic design, web design, digital arts, multimedia, marketing, and fine arts can be completed in as little as 9 months studying part time and cost as little as $250 per month.

Students who want to capitalize on their previous education or want to diversify their training can now opt to customize up to 50% of a 360 clock hour Professional Certificate program. This innovative approach provides flexibility under the guidance of Sessions’ design experts to optimize the program outcomes, as well as producing a professional portfolio of work. Programs are fully online and are completed in 9 months on a part time basis.

The Professional Certificate PLUS program is designed for students who want a blend of both subject matter expertise and customization. This 12-month part time program provides students with the ability to enhance the breadth of their creative abilities by adding one or more areas of concentration in other subject areas.

“We have listened to requests from marketing professionals looking to pick up more polished design skills, or business owners who want to make videos to strengthen their marketing efforts, and graphic designers who want to strengthen their photography skills,” commented Ms. De La Garza. “What all of these students have in common is a real need to add more skills to their repertoire in an accessible, flexible environment. We now have the ability to answer this need.”

For students who are new to the design field, the Professional Certificate provides a deep dive into one of the six design areas. These fully defined programs ensure students with a solid grasp of the latest technology, design principles, and design process skills needed to succeed in these dynamic and exciting fields.

True to its mission, Sessions’ innovative asynchronous project-based educational paradigm provides a high quality, engaging, and industry-relevant education for those who seek rewarding careers in high demand, dynamic and lucrative fields.

Sessions is dedicated to delivering a great student experience with a consistent record of over 90% of its students saying they are satisfied with their programs and would recommend Sessions College to a friend.
