I am looking to get my MFA in Graphic design. I need the flexibility of an online program, as my husbands job does not allow me to relocate for school. I already have a bachelors in Computer Science/ Multimedia design from Pepperdine University, and want to continue on the path of Graphic Design. I have seen TONS of good and bad things said about this school, but a lot of the negative comments come from 2007-2010. I am curious if there are any students CURRENTLY enrolled or RECENTLY graduated from this school (online or not) that have some input.
I looked into, and actually applied to SCAD's online program for this degree, but unfortunately was not accepted. There have been a lot of comments about their open enrollment being a bad thing, but it would help give me the chance another school wasn't willing to give me, and I expect that the classes will be challenging and time demanding. I am not looking for a free ride degree. I want to actually learn more and grow as a designer.
But I digress. Any and ALL information people can provide as to if this is a good place to go would be helpful.
As a note, many have complained about the advisers and financial aid. I am pretty OCD and would not leave all the details of classes I need to take or ensuring everything is covered money wise to someone else to handle for me without ensuring from many avenues that everything was truly in line.
