STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY SAN FRANCISCO - A NICE PLACE TO STUDY

The college was suggested to me by one of my close friends as his father had studied there. I explored a lot about the college and then after reading the pros and cons I finally decided to opt for this college. I applied to the college by paying an application fee of $50 at their official website.


Course Curriculum - 

The main emphasis of my curriculum is on technical proficiency, effective verbal and graphic communication skills, and sustainability. It also focuses on the development of critical thinking. The curriculum is also making us socially and historically aware so that we have the in-depth knowledge and excellent skills to create a safe and pleasing interior environment.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

MY MEMORIES OF THE ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY SAN FRANCISCO

I had wanted to study in the USA as early as I can remember. After completing secondary school, I had started searching on the various art schools across the USA and I chose to apply here as this is one of the largest and most renowned art schools in America. I had applied online with my high school transcripts and an application fee of around $150.


Course Curriculum - 

My course was thrilling, to say the least. It was of the highest academic standards as could be expected from an institute of such repute and was rather demanding. I attended classes on numerous subjects, such as - Environmental and communication design, packaging and so much more. This gave me the confidence to make plans for my future web designing company.

STUDENT SATISFACTION RATINGS

MY TIME AT ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY

I found this college when one of me suggested it for my architecture masters course. After that a booked a call with the college authority and asked them a few of my concerns. I also took feedback from the alumnus of the college and then I finally decided to fill the online form for $50.


Course Curriculum - 

The course teaches you to clearly look at the problem with an analytical mind and solve it block by block. There are four kinds of things that the students are required to which are Research and Analysis, Visual Communication, Design Process, and professional readiness. The course makes a student ready for an industrial job overall.
