At The Art Institutes schools, our curriculum is carefully scrutinized and developed by industry professionals and prominent employers who tell us what skills are needed in the workplace. This means that your education is relevant, practical and hands-on. In fact, the classroom often mimics what you'll find on the job. Members of our faculty also continue to work professionally in the fields they are teaching*, so you'll have an opportunity to learn what's currently happening in your chosen field.
