Goddard College Graduate Reviews
The academics are student-lead, and are as rigorous as you make them. However, if you are not engaged you will not succeed. It is a very self-motivated environment and great for students who are marginalized at other colleges. The Decolonial and indigenous arts program is thoughtful and well moderated. The students are all exceptional and drawn to the school because of it's model of self-direction and very engaged faculty.
Goddard allowed me to study a field not usually offered in fine arts schools. I have been supported at every turn, while moving my own research forward into new places and new spaces. Goddard faculty has been helpful, kind, and pushed me to new heights of academia.
Their innovative approach to education is extremely refreshing. One must be prepared for somewhat of a homeopathic culture, but their accommodations of students' needs and goals is downright amazing.
