Amazing Design school that will push you to your limits. Its not like any other school. It has a dynamic atmosphere which keeps you engaged. Its a unique school with great faculty. The curriculum makes the school intense but then again it pushes you to work hard. It has a competitive environment that prepares you to face anything that comes your way. Not only do you learn from the teachers, a lot of learning happens in studios with and from your peers.
Not only is SCI-Arc among the top schools in the world, it's network is so vast that I know I'll have a secure career once I graduate, both in the USA and internationally! And previously being an art major, SCI-Arc has the perfect unison of artistic design married with architectural design. They also have the top software and tools to fabricate and build whatever you can think of. The teachers and staff are the top of their field and help guide students through the program.
