"SCAD is a great institution to build up on your networking and artistic skills. They have excellent resources; instructors, career fairs and activities that help their students achieve great success. However, it all comes out on the effort that you put in your studies. SCAD is a great college for the people that are ready to achieve their goals in their chosen profession."

"7 full time faculty with smaller number of graduate students makes for a great faculty/student ratio; small class sizes though sometimes classes will be cancelled due to not having enough students enrolled;"

"Pros: Students are given attention because of small class size. Student experiences constant critique of work in order to improve. No tests but lots of projects , which is good to develop your portfolio and skills. Small amount of classmates that you will keep seeing in other classes, tight knit community. High level of quality of work expected. Real life expectations as if in the workplace. Cons: Time constraints based on the number of projects given to grad students and the level of quality of work. Sometimes critiquing from fellow students and faculty can be vague. Not enough time slots for classes."

"This program is intensive, and takes longer than the ideal 2-year program. Though it is more work, you are guaranteed to exit this program a true master of fashion design. The faculty maintain a valuable network with renowned companies and designers for internship placement, workshops, and special events. Modern and fast-paced, this program is hard work but turns out skilled professionals every year!"

"SCAD, aside from being located in the very picturesque historic district of Savannah, Georgia, is an institution full of very committed and enthusiastic creatives, both in the student body and the faculty. The facilities are all located in beautifully renovated old buildings, with technology almost as up to date as the industry, if not more so, in some instances. The pros of the school are very similar to the cons. As with all graduate programs, you get what you put in, and if you want the experience to work for you, then you definitely have to work for it. It is expensive, but there are a number of academic and art-based scholarships that you can qualify for (automatically), and as far as career prospects, the school brings in speakers and recruiters directly from big industry employers - if you have put hard work into your portfolio and are willing to reach out to the network that the school has, you can definitely succeed. Networking is how everything is done in the career world, and SCAD makes no show of having too much "artistic integrity" to connect students to industry professionals. Where other schools I've attended insisted that "selling out" and working for commercial or entertainment studios undermined one's "artistic integrity", SCAD is trying their best to get you a job. Which, these days, is at the top of everyone's list."

"SCAD is a great school for graduate or undergraduate students. The Film and Television program offers valuable hands on experience that will surely prepare any aspiring filmmakers for the industry. The professors have years of experience in the industry and are always willing to help. They are constantly pushing students to do better and try harder. This a great university for anyone looking to pursue a creative career."
