Its a great place. You'll love it there
I finished a BA in Film and SCAD was one of the few schools that offered a Masters degree in Cinema Studies without production. My classes were exactly the same as my undergrad work. Some of my professors didn't even teach, they had the students--most of which had not formally studied film--give lectures instead. My degree program was lengthened due to a lack of faculty, so while my classes were done, I had to wait a year to deal with the administration. My comp exam scores were lost. My information was often sent to the wrong person. As far as finding a job, I've asked the career advisor for help and she suggested a LinkedIn page. If you want to be treated like a number, this is the school for you.
I loved it! I strongly suggest getting financial aid in order to pay to go here. Debt is not a good option ... so if you can afford here without going into debt- do it!
Great school and great opportunities behind every door
I thought SCAD was a wonderful school. My professors were in incredibly supportive and the technology of the college was always up to date. We had really good career services- I feel I was taught things from a career perspective that a lot of colleges leave out. To be completely honest, I fully believe that my current success (Full time, salaried w/ benefits position in my dream field) is due entirely to SCAD's combination of connections, education, and career prep.
Great experience considering two major aspects in SCAD VFX: The cutting edge equipments of the industry and the experienced faculty members.
I loved the time I spent at SCAD. Professors are helpful and professional, degree programs are challenging and rewarding, and Savannah is a beautiful city with tons of fun stuff to do. Most importantly, I now have a rewarding and well-paying job in my field and have always felt like SCAD prepared me well for the workplace. If I had to choose again between the art schools in the US, I would choose SCAD again in a heartbeat.
Not worth the money. They promise a lot of great things but don't deliver. A lot of hype for a community college level education. In fact I got a better education from my community college for a mere fraction of the cost.
I started off attending the Fashion Institute of Technology for Fashion Merchandising and Management. I obtained by Associates degree and continued for my Bachelors. While in school I interned for Michael Kors in their sales department. This is when I realized I did not want to be a buyer or a planner and at FIT that was the majority of the classes. They weren't satisfying my creative side. So I left FIT and New York and moved to Savannah, Georgia where the tea is sweet and SCAD knows fashion. SCAD really focuses on your core art classes and mixes in fashion design courses into the Fashion Marketing and Management program. We learn how to create mood boards, develop ideas for collections and sketch our ideas and bring them to life. They also focus a lot of the technology aspect of the industry. It was at SCAD that I learned the Adobe Suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Dreamweaver) and we apply them to real life situations. All the professors at SCAD have been in the industry and made some type of major contribution to the industry. I wanted a career that satisfied both my business and creative side and SCAD really pushed me to do better and think outside of social norms.
