“I have learned how to think critically, apply classroom skills to real-world projects and problems and expand my knowledge of different styles of art. Classes are set up in an agency-style setting with strict deadlines and projects restraints. I have no doubt I will be able to keep up with fast-paced, graphic-design environments.”
