Certain departments at SVA are stronger than others

Dec 08 2013Art & Design Department
Certain departments at SVA are stronger than others. The Computer Art department is probably one of the strongest departments in the school. They bring on amazing visiting lecturers and have top notch faculty who are currently working in the field at top studios. SVA also gets a lot of nominations by Siggraph for work done and for the students' thesis. At the last Siggraph award ceremony, they had more thesis nominees than that of any other school in the New York area. In fact there may have been more nominees than all of the other schools combined.It is a great program, and I highly recommend it.

The thesis advising was excellent too as was the great facilities. They not only have very current and powerful computers but a great render farm. Basically everything that a student needs to learn all aspects of the animation pipeline are available.

You can also tailor your education to either become a strong generalist or to become strong is a particular area of the animation pipeline.Bottom line: I would HIGHLY recommend SVA for grad work.

The graduate art therapy program at SVA is

May 11 2009Unknown
The graduate art therapy program at SVA is a new program. The faculty tries too hard to prove that they are at par with other programs in the city. The faculty creates fear within the student body, exacerbating the already high levels of stress. The program's chairperson often makes demeaning comments towards students. It seems like the top concern of the program is collecting the already-high tuition from the students. 5 of 24 students did not complete the 2007-09 program.
