Choosing a Program

Are you not sure which program is right for you?

You will have an experienced, knowledgeable Admissions Representative who will talk to you about your background, your interests, and your goals. You will be able to ask all the questions you want about what each program is, what it offers, and what the differences are between them.

Are you interested in many different programs?

We welcome you renaissance types. At Academy of Art University, we not only allow you to study across any areas of art and design you choose, we encourage it. No matter what program you ultimately choose, you will have the flexibility to customize and manage your coursework to reflect all of your diverse interests, all with the help of your personal Academic Advisor. Although you will be choosing a home department to start with, we don't want you to feel pressured to choose your final program when you apply if you are not ready yet. Talk to your Admissions Representative about making your first semester classes right for you should you wish to have the choice between certain programs in the future.

Are you absolutely certain about what you want to study?

There are still many exciting choices you can talk to your Admissions Representative about. Each one of our programs has advanced coursework that reflects the same types of specializations out there in the industry. Are you interested in jewelry making? Printmaking? Comic book illustration? Copywriting? Acting? Documentary photography? We have all of this, and so much more.

Whether you want to know more about the multiple programs that involve your interests, or whether you want all the information you can get about one of our programs, we are happy to talk to you. Just call us at 800.544.2787, or click here to chat with an Admissions Representative.
