Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

This school no longer offers a Master's in Art Education, sadly. It was a wonderful experience and I am a successful art teacher because of the education I received there.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Going through Columbia's Arts Management grad program prepared me to work in multiple disciplines across the arts. Ample networking opportunities existed, and I left feeling prepared to work. The program does require you to have a lot of self-direction, though.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

The MAT Visual Arts K-12 program at Columbia College Chicago has proven their stellar reputation for networking their pre-service educators with seasoned teachers throughout the Chicago-Land area. The resources and connections provided for their students is second to none. The student advisory department, however, tends to be disorganized and inconsistent in their delivery of vital information such as deadlines and extra-curricular requirements for completion of the program.

PROS: AMAZING and competent professors, excellent location of study, strong connections within the community, strong curriculum/course of study, nice studios. CONS: not a lot of support for quantitative research, education regarding licensure is very late in program course of study.

Degree: Fashion
Graduation Year: 2004

If anyone is SERIOUS about becoming a fashion designer, then enrolling in the Fashion Studies Program at Columbia College Chicago is one of the best schools ever! It's not just about learning how to sew clothes and draw, the fashion teachers teaches you about EVERYTHING in the fashion industry: operating an industrial sewing machine, patternmaking, draping, textiles & fabrics, CAD, merchandising management, etc. I will say that it was easy in the beginning but challenging at the end due to learning new techniques and projects. Overall, it was worth it since I was able to find a job right away due to the use my fashion knowledge that my fashion teachers taught me. Thank you CCC! ^_^

Faculty are involved and engaged throughout graduate studies, this is very helpful as you develop professionally, through internship opportunities.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

My graduate program makes a sincere effort to discuss culture and diversity. The program could grade harder or more realistically. At times it feels like everyone gets the same grade; this is frustrating for (healthy) competitive learners.

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel like the abundance of technology and avant garde teachers is amazing and worth the high tuition and cost of living in the city!
