Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2014

I chose Massart because I loved the atmosphere. Even though I got into a more competitive art school, I didn't like how stuck up they seemed. All through my time at massart, everyone was always helpful, kind and passionate. I had some great professors and I found best friends who were like me and had a similar experience to mine, despite all of us being in different majors. I am also gainfully employed and using my degree, and I know the skills I learned at massart helped me get where I am now.

Degree: Illustration
Graduation Year: 2014

As a communication major you're part of the trifecta of the communication majors Graphic Design, Illustration and Animation. Graphic Design is probably one of the most grueling majors in terms of workload and lack of cutting any slack but all communication majors' workload is hefty. By hefty I mean if you're a superhuman and manage to convince the advisors to double major in one of these and another non-design major, then somehow finagle your schedule to complete in 5 years, there's still a 85% you'll drop one anyway. Senior year is just exhaustion x10, then again most everyone I knew either had jobs as well as doing a full-time curriculum or took on extra classes/clubs/activities. There are good professors that will help you hone your skills, whether you're self motivated or need someone to push you. I had mostly good experiences with the classes I selected but I did a lot of research before registering each semester because there were a few I dreaded even being in the same room with. Most information was fundamentals, which I knew would happen as someone with prior experience in the real world but I did get really good experiences out of it and some interesting skills I wouldn't have had thought to pursue otherwise. MassArt has pretty good programs, equipment and studio spaces. It's also part of the Colleges of the Fenway meaning you can register for credit classes at the other colleges without paying extra tuition, I took some ASL classes that counted for literature & writing credits. There isn't much of a campus, dorms and Chartwells cafeterias/convenience store are shared with Wentworth and MCPHS. It's located in a good area of Boston with the T right in front of the school and plenty of food options surrounding it. I do recommend having a good grasp of navigating college forms and things, as a first gen. I got stuck with a lot of miscommunication and in a tricky situation where neither state of where I moved from nor where I moved to were recognized by MassArt for scholarships and in-state tuition. If you have to deal with the offices I suggest a lot of patience and always keeping paperwork/copies just in case.
