Classes are tailored to students who are majoring in art in my program,although UAA has many programs of study.I am choosing art, as eventually I want to be a ART Professor .This semester I have more intensive classes that require much work out of class so i am not working.Class size is not huge but about just right i would say.

Academics Rating

My school's programs are great! It seems to me that everyone I have met who are in different programs have also enjoyed theirs. The workload isn't too terrible as long as you are an avid studier, take notes, and pay attention in class. That has truly been my only advice I've taken throughout these three years. The professors I've had are fantastic! They are so approachable and very easy to speak with about assignments and even just to chit-chat with.
