This school has more bureaucratic nonsense then you could ever imagine. I am in the film department which shouldn't exist, every class is dull boring and unhelpful. You do the reading and then the teacher regurgitates the entire reading, this is every class. so it is pointless. The creative classes are all taught by close minded dull professors and the faculty stand behind all their boring decisions. They all use the word "Holistic" to describe the department, this is in fact a code for "you are just another paycheck to us, and we don't care if you learn a thing". It is frustrating to navigate through the major, required classes are only offered in specific quarters and often overlap with other required classes. So good luck trying to graduate early or on time having felt that you learned something.
