What will I have to show for doing this program? I have been made to believe that employers will see that I studied under some of the best artists in their respective genres and will understand what this entails, right? Anyways, what my mom really wants to see is a degree. She says that without a degree, she absolutely will not support me or let me attend. Instead she insists that I take out student loans to study at Ringling or SCAD, a college that is accredited, but also a place which I know cannot give me the kind of stellar education that TAD can, for much, much less.
I can't for the life of me make her understand that I don't need a degree, or do I? I've heard many tell me here that I don't; and the professionals here should know, as they work in the industry themselves.
Can I get some various reasons why I don't need a degree/do need a degree, or what are TAD's plans in the future of possibly becoming accredited?
Thanks so much.
