Major: Art & Design Department (This Major's Salary over time)
Major: Fashion Design.

The online department is awful, the quality of the students' works is beyond belief, and I mean in a bad way. Majority of them draw like little kids, I guess it's understandable since this school accepts ANYONE without asking any portfolios. On top of that, most online students don't have any sense of deadline and turn crappy assignments that are obviously done in the last minute. They don't teach you anything new about construction, everything they teach you can be found in books. I'm very frustrated with the quality of fashion department that they have here. They don't have any prominent career recruiting programs like other schools, once you graduate, good luck in finding jobs or internships. Faculty personnel is hard to reach. Everything is a big disappointment, so if you are interested in applying into their fashion programs, just skip it, don't even bother. Better go to Parsons where the education is worth the money, or FIT where it's a lot cheaper even if you are out of state students.
