    STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

    USA COMMUNICATION DEPARTMENT IS AWESOME!

    I went to the USA because of the local aspect towards home and the atmosphere of the university. It was a large university and the staff was plentiful. I also have used my education skills at a local community college and I feel that South should require some aspect of the community college before one attends. It was rigorous as expected, and I feel that one who doesn't take the time to complete a semester at a community college would not succeed.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It was exciting towards the end, very awesome instructors, and it was rigorous as expected. I could have done without the extra courses in the arts and sciences curriculum like a foreign language requirement.

    UNIVERSITY OF SOUTH ALABAMA REVIEW

    It was the best option in my city and I had heard many great things about their program and student activities. I knew several people who had received a great education from this particular university.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It is well taught, but not up to modern day standards. They teach a whole lot of print design and art, but the reality of graphic design is that it is now more digitally focused and it is more like a business than a painting.
