The University of the Arts Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (1)
The University of the Arts is a great institution depending on the major the student goes for. For the performing arts, it's incredible and it has brought out wonderful performers, some alumni have even danced with Beyonce and worked with other famous performers. However, for the visual arts, it is not as strong as it could be. UArts has some very inspiring faculty, but on the undergrad level sometimes there is not enough attention paid to its students. In the Illustration department I was constantly pushed to have " a style" but at the same time every time I tried to explore and find it, they told me I was all over the place and discouraged me from doing it. We also had to take a typography class that was a total joke and did not teach anyone anything about typography. On the other hand, the printmaking department (I minored in this) was the complete opposite, they encouraged experimentation and learning new techniques, giving me the ability to think outside the box and push myself. Some majors are better than others, but I'm sure that is true for every institution.
