Specs Howard School of Media Arts Reviews

I did two programs at this trade school and those two years were the best school experiences I've ever had. Every single day was learning something new in a fun way. Since each course only took a year, it was definitely challenging in that it was a lot of knowledge thrown at you in a short period of time, but the instructors knew how to do their job and made learning fun for everyone. Being that their instructors are also well established in media careers aside from teaching was very helpful. They had inside knowledge that other may not have had, had they not done the work themselves.
The classes individually only meet once a week so the communication between student and professor is mainly done online but this does not stop students from being successful and working with professors for their best possible work. The registration process was basic. It included an aptitude test, an outline of the course, a registration fee, and working with an advisor to get the best possible program.
I think the real value of the tuition cost is in the professors, equipment, and hands-on experience received while at Specs Howard. Of course none of us like to spend a lot of money on a quality education but the reward of a good career that you love should be worth something. The financial aid department is very helpful to students in financial need. I would suggest to any new student at Specs Howard just to visit with them and see what they can offer you.
