It is a very expensive and very useless program. Despite being in its infancy - less that three graduating classes deep - the leadership refuses to accept feedback and spends all its time and energy which could be used developing and growing the program to what students thought they were signing up for, into rejecting and whitewashing concerns as not important. Two of the four enrolled women dropped out, and despite asking repeatedly if they couldn't consider holding more classes at times that would allow working students to attend, they simply don't seem to think it's worth it to them to consider restructuring. Furthermore, despite requiring no portfolio to apply, there is a presumed basis in art fundamentals, and if you don't have them the first two semesters mean you're making things you don't have a purpose or meaning behind. It's just bizarre how ill-thought-out the program seems to be. Despite constantly teaching us that there is no way to learn now what may be the trend in the future, they claim to have built the philosophy/theory-heavy curriculum in a 'future-proof' way. Despite that, the requisite classes focus an unhealthy amount on areas that are very now like game development and interactive design. But with zero technical backing. A baffling program. Well worth talking to actual graduates from it before spending a dime.
