ART AND ARCHITECTURE PROGRAMS


School Finders


Specific Schools/Programs

Note: When considering any school, particular a for-profit one, closely examine the program's accreditation, transferability of courses, and employment placement. Do not rely solely on promises/claims made by the school. For example, if they say their courses will transfer to a particular school, double check with the other school.
