As a first year Grad, I feel like the pros of this program are the facilities. Mass Art has some of the best facilities in the country and is open to students using various areas of the college in order to complete work that may be cross disciplined. As a grad student, I am allowed to be on campus at any hour during the semester, if need be. There are visiting artists, film screenings, fun extra curricular activities and a multitude of networking opportunities in Boston and beyond. One con of the program however is funding, as a very working class student who is unable to take out private loans, I struggle to afford food, rent, and supplies necessary for my classes. I have yet to set up a meeting about this particular, but am working on having the college allot me more money due to my financial constraints. The work load is large so the college would probably rather have you take out loans so you are able to focus. However without money, you cannot do much.
The cafeteria is not as diverse as it could be in its selections.

I think my graduate program is great. They push you to think outside the box and to solve difficult communication problems. They partner with other schools and also bring in outside guest speakers to lecture on the current field. They have small class sizes with international students. Small class sizes are also a con. There were only 10 people in each class with let you have hands on attention, but also only allows you to have view points from only 10 people. I think it would be beneficial to have classes with more students to get different points of view.
