University of New Orleans Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
The University of New Orleans is an excellent choice for students wishing to pursue a degree in Film Arts. The curriculum is inclusive of both film history, theory and writing, as well as practical instruction in film production and post-production. The student film community is very active, allowing students to learn from participating in the production process at various stages. Attending this program also allows students to assert their ambitions and be involved in the film community at a professional level, as New Orleans is an active production hub. Unfortunately, the student is generally solely responsible for seeking out professional career opportunities. The University did not provide me with any support in terms of networking opportunities or career advising. I was also disappointed that the film curriculum did not provide the opportunity for independent projects, namely to write, produce and direct a short film for one's portfolio. Overall, I am satisfied with my degree in Film Arts from the University of New Orleans and am grateful for the opportunities my education provided me.
The University is very personable to every student! I loved the faculty!
UNO has one of the best psych undergraduate programs in the country.
If you like being taught by TAs, having a limited choices as to what classes you can take (many students can't finish because the courses they need aren't offered), and not being prepared to enter the industry (unless you want to be a PA), then UNO is for you. If you do attend, watch out for the int'l dept. If you try to study abroad in a program that they don't provide, they'll take your money and run! And don't bother with counseling. They'll ask you why you're trying to take classes and graduate. X'D
UNO is a great campus for those who are ready to begin their journey into the working world. They prepare you well for the challenges you will face in your career and how to overcome.
