"In some ways, the Fashion Institute of Technologys Advertising and Marketing Communications program both underwhelmed me and exceeded my expectations. I was underwhelmed because I had unusual--but probably common--expectations. When I applied to FIT, I thought I would be immersed in the world of fashion--from its history to its theory. I could not have been more wrong. After all, it was a marketing program, so I really just took Marketing 101-type classes. Thats not to say that these classes cant be fun or useful, but dont expect to get a whole fashion education when youre just talking about a topical politicians latest PR stunt. That being said, there are still many more opportunities to explore fashion in the coursework than youd think. Whatever chance I could, I focused my term-projects on whatever fashion brand I was interested in. In that way, I gave myself my own fashion education through a marketing lens. Conversely, FIT did exceed my expectation with the incredible network it has. Its important to take advantage of all the resources they have: the academic advisement center, the career center for resume-writing help, and the financial aid office. The key is to find out what resources there are and reach out when you need them!"

"MFA Exhibition Design at FIT is marvelous! I have learned a lot and the professors are super knowledgeable. They always THERE FOR YOU! I have a few more semesters left, but I am already confidence in my future because the courses are so well organized and prepared. It extremely hard program and you will not make it if you do not have a true passion for this industry! At FIT, you will be prepared to work with a sponsor projects from a well known business firm in exhibition design industry. You will be challenged to be more than just a designer. You will be historians, curators, thinkers, philosophers, graphic designers, interior designers, etc... it seems like how can it be possible to have all these skills!? but it's will gain all of these skills from your programs. It's totally a life time experience that you will not regret!"

"The MFA in Illustration at Fashion Institute of Technology is a wonderful program for people who work in the day. It is designed for people who are creative and looking to begin a new illustration career or grow their illustrative skills. We learn from all types of artists currently working in the field such as painting, children books, comics, editorials and animation. It is very exciting and a lot of work, but it will be rewarding when I finish. We are learning to create a business from our artistic talents."
