Overall Experience: If I had to do it all over aging I would go with Academy of Art University. Even doe mastering in Arts is hard but, doing it at (AAU) its very rewarding. Especially if say did something over and over, up to 4am in the morning and bring that thing to life its very rewarding...

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: A week is given to complete each "Module" which consists of reading and completing a project. Depending on the project, more or less time is needed each week to be devoted to it, but the time given was always sufficient for me. I acquired my AA at a community college before transferring to AAU, but only some of the classes transferred over for credit because AAU is an art school so not everything is applicable. It still transferred more than I expected though, including Math and English classes, as well as language classes.

Online Courses: I have only had minor experience with online classes before attending AAU, but I was surprised at how organized and effective they were. It is very well structured and participation in discussion is required so there is a connection built between classmates. The workload is reasonable and the time given to complete readings and projects if sufficient. Media including instructional videos created directly by AAU teachers help immensely in learning how to use required software as well as learning all the techniques presented in the modules. It is not all just reading! Those who need visuals to help them learn will find those videos very helpful.

Overall Experience: Many if not all the instructors are active in their field; one of my animation teachers was an animator on films such as Hercules and Tarzan. There is a very wide variety of courses offered that can be taken based on your degree and then your emphasis in that degree (such as BFA in Animation, with an Emphasis in 2D animation). Online classes a very well constructed and I did not feel disconnected from fellow students or my professors.

Overall Experience: AAU seems to be super connected to all major Studios and companies in the fields of animation and others. Many alumni have gone on to work for various large companies like Pixar and Disney and seem quite successful. There seem to be a lot of panels where employers come to talk to students and connect with possible employees.

Academic Experience: I am an Online Student working toward a BFA in Animation & Visual Effects. I was surprised at how effective the online courses played out and I feel like I got just as much out of it that I would have in an onsite class. Everything is very organized, the time given to complete reading and projects is sufficient, and everything learned is applied in each project. Not only are the concepts presented important, but they are very fun to carry out in your own projects! My experience in these classes has further increased my confidence in my career choice.
