Default Freelance Graphic Design opps?

I am contemplating going back and getting my associate's in graphic design. Having a liberal arts degree under my belt and several design courses completed, I do not think it would take long for me to finish.

Are there plentiful work at home opportunities or is the industry over saturated? I am currently a writer, but there is a lot of competition out there and wanted to keep my options open.

I'd say it wouldn't hurt to have both options
You can promote both services and make money with writing gigs or design gigs. There is a lot of competition out there, but you can start out locally and via word of mouth

The solution is always find a niche or go local.

Hi tenderone,

I'm working towards a graphic design degree(BA) and can tell you that, yes there is alot of competition, but if you have high enough skills, you'll have a better chance.

I'm thinking about changing my degree to Computer science, but not sure.

Even most internships require a Bachellors degree, especially paid.

This is just what I've experienced.

If you continue with graphic design, there are a few freelance sites like Elance and Odesk(I prefer Elance because they block some of the scams).

Good luck!
