The Art Institute of Houston Reviews
The Art Institute of Houston has been an excellent experience for me. Their immediate hands on instruction has helped me to understand my future career profession. I only wish that they would offer more financial opportunities for struggling families. But I truly love my college!
The work load is a very heavy! You are in a classroom for four hours per class, then on top of that you have all of the homework to go with it. Most students take in between four and five classes. Each class has about four to five hours minimum of homework time along with it. Some classes have more homework time. The lab classes are the ones that have the most homework and generally the general education classes have less homework. Some classes we are unsure as to why we have to take them, but they're for basic education in certain areas so that you can have a basic understanding of different things.
I loved taking online classes! They only lasted five and a half weeks, so there was a little bit more of a work load. Rather than meeting and turning in work once a week, you had two assignments due a week. The advantage of taking classes online was that you were finished with it sooner than if you take it in class. I learned a lot in the online classes and hope that I am able to take more in the following quarters. I also felt that my grades overall were better while doing a mixture of online and on campus classes.
