We'll look at your creative work (or lack of work), seek to understand your ambitions, dreams and experience. You'll, of course, have questions and will want to find out just why so many graduates have found pathways to higher rewards as creativity professionals.

Should you explore a BA Degree or a Professional Intensive program?

While the focus here is on building studio level know-how, Living Arts wants you to begin your education with a practical career plan. You have options. If you're a recent high school graduate seeking a higher education experience, Living Arts delivers an unique THREE year BA Degree. This shorter program replaces the traditional four year BA Degree. The difference is ... only the calendar time is different. The Living Arts BA is delivered within a similar number of hours. Classtime simply runs with fewer calendar breaks. For example, there is no lengthy summer break period.

Best of all, the THREE year BA Degree saves real money through big savings on living costs and no fourth year tuition. And, the graduate heads for the job market one year sooner than the traditional student! Plan to learn more program features and investment value options by connecting with an Advisor.

The PID—Professional Intensive Diploma program series can be completed in 18 or fewer months. This can be the valuable program selection for the adult learner who wants targeted know-how for today's higher demand digital jobs. This directed learning experience becomes even more valuable through studio level practice. Your Advisor will provide added details.
