Another back to school conundrum

I'm thinking about going back to school for a BS in Interactive Media Design from an Art Institute. Is a 4 yr BS program worth it?

I already have a BA in English Lit. Enough said. I'm currently working the 9-5 life of a glorified admin. I make good enough money but fear I'm losing the will to live.
I've been thinking about going to some kind art school for forever and a day and I finally think I've found what I want to do. This particular Art Institute has an 8 semester program which would spit me out with a BS in Interactive Media Design (graphic design, web design animation etc...) I, hopefully, can transfer my previous Gen Ed credits which would cut my class load down by 10 (about 2 semesters worth). This means I would only be in school for 2-3 yrs.
Is it worth it for a BS? It's an undergraduate degree, but a fairly dense one. I have no graphic skills to speak of, but my little heart starts beating happy and faster at the oppurtunity to learn.
