Academy of Art University Graduate Reviews

7 reviews
I am an online student of the Master of Fine Arts Interior Design Program. The online program does not allow students to have a school-work-life balance. The courses materials are outdated. Few professors are good; while most, are bad. The skills being taught in my online classes are not propelling me to get a job after graduation. They really don't teach me the skills to be a professional interior designer, to be competitive with other design professionals seeking jobs, and the online support system is not at all supportive. The instructors care more about the quantity of work that they give to you; more so than the quality of work given to you. Moreover, the classes, the instructors do not prepare you for a real-life job after school. This school is super expensive. Therefore, you should go to another school where you can receive up-to-date education, real life skills and the support that one needs in order to find a job after graduation.

Absolutely love my online classes, I am learning a lot! The courses are organized and clear. The professor is engaged. The content is current and accurate.
Well organized and helpful. Once you're in it, they're helpful along the way. There's a very open and accepting community. It's hard work but well worth the time.
