Santa Fe University of Art and Design Reviews
Review Santa Fe University of Art and Design
Almost everything about this school is amazing! The quality of the professors and courses are excellent. The professors especially are usually published artists in the fields they teach and have more knowledgeable teaching styles, they also greatly encourage class interaction, are often available by email or have scheduled office hours, and are often just as artistically "unique" as the students they teach, which allows them to better relate to and communicate with their students. The class sizes, despite their popularity are usually small to average size, which most students greatly enjoy. And the school definitely offers a wide variety of classes. The school's quality is excellent.
This school works with the local community to help it's students succeed in getting a job in their field. The school often works with movie producers and film crews and actually have a policy that the crew has to use student interns for their film! The rest of the fields offer similar programs to their students, trying to help them get a hands-on, immersive experience in their career field before graduating; many actually end up taking part in a published work in their field before graduating!
The professors are generally cool and have us do things relevant to our major. There are a few exceptions, of course. The classes are always small, even the lecture-type ones; the most people I've ever had in a class was around 30. The professors genuinely care about our success. However, taking classes outside of your major can be difficult. We have a required number of electives, but special permission, which can be hard to get, is required to take basically anything not in your department. You apply to a specific program and start in that major from your freshman year, which unfortunately means there's not many opportunities to explore other art fields.
