As one of 40 plus Art Institutes throughout North America, the Art Institute of California – San Diego stands out from the rest due to its location in the Mission Valley, near cultural attractions, entertainment areas and very well known beaches. The actual school is equipped with large classrooms and all of the professional equipment and amenities needed for students to explore their creativity and succeed, including but not limited to high-tech computer labs, an art supply store, a library and a student lounge.
With majors covering a wide range of associate and bachelor’s degrees, from advertising and fashion marketing to graphic design and visual & game programming, the school offers many fields of study not found at other schools. In fact, the culinary arts section of the school recently received an upgrade with the April 2004 opening of The Palette, a restaurant operated by both senior culinary students and the chef faculty.
Courses and degree programs are offered year-round, divided up into quarter systems, so students can attain their degree a lot faster than traditional universities. Students can normally complete a program and obtain a degree within 21 to 36 months, depending on the specific field.
Additionally, the staff and industry professionals constantly review and revise the school’s curriculum, guaranteeing that what is taught to students is applicable to the modern, changing work field. Because of this, graduates are always prepared for soliciting entry-level positions within their fields.
Also, the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology has accredited the Art Institute of California – San Diego.
