Major: Art & Design Department (This Major's Salary over time)
The school boasts about their job placement statistics, but these numbers are inflated. Many students transfer or drop out, and many also take several years longer to get their degrees. It is desirable for many students to find work while they are in school and leave BEFORE completing their degree. The school does have good contacts, but you must network extensively to take advantage of them. Many instructors work in the animation and design industry, and its your relationship with them, and NOT the Academy that will get you a good job. Morale fluctuates severely about the availability of jobs. The department heads also change frequently (almost every semester in fact), along with the required guidelines and classes to complete your degree. You will not complete your degree in 4 years taking 4 classes a semester. Studio art classes are difficult as you get into your second year, and four can be a very full workload.
