Student & Graduate Reviews (8)

-
Degree: Multi-/Interdisciplinary Studies, Other
Graduation Year: 2006

Take advantage of all the services and special departments. Columbia College has many hidden gems like the Center for Black Music and the Print Shop & the Photography Center. Remember that Chicago is your campus! Go out, listen to music and eat good pizza and make great art.

Degree: Film/Video and Photographic Arts, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

The Cinema department is fairly excellent, and those of my friends who have pursued employment in the film industry have done well. I left to join to the ASL department, and was not nearly as satisfied. It is a small department, and cattiness is a problem. The method of assessment does not adequately test the skills of the student, and if one fails, they are left with few options and very little guidance. The program itself is good, but students should be prepared for a lack of support by the staff.

Degree: Photography
Graduation Year: 2011

You get out of this school what you put in. Network, network, network. Focus as much as you can on specific classes and teachers who can offer you things you want in your future work. It is a place which you can either take the easy way or really put in your own effort and get an amazing arts education.

Degree: Marketing - Advertising
Graduation Year: 2015

Columbia College is a great school if you want to live in the middle of big city, and you're seeking a campus filled with diversity. Specifically, if you're in the Advertising program - the staff and faculty are always there to help you and give you real world experiences. If you ask, they are willing to help you find scholarships and internships with great companies. Columbia is also always offering networking opportunities so that you can meet with company representatives as well as other students who you can work with throughout your college career. All of the teachers I met worked or were currently working in the field that they were teaching. Columbia is a great school and the people there are passionate about what they do.

Degree: Video Game Design
Graduation Year: 2009

Columbia College is a good art school that has mediocre job placement It certainly makes sure you get the experiences and education you need to pursue your field but it fully expects you to be doing everything you need to outside of class to ensure your future, it's never too soon to start a portfolio and learn how to sell your abilities and worth as an employee or artist

The class sizes were small and it allowed teachers to focus on teaching at a good pace for the class while also being able to help individual students if needed.
