MCAD tuition is certainly very expensive, but I can personally assure you that you are getting quality education from people who are passionate about their art (and who currently work in their chosen field). The facilities are high-quality, and the studios are spacious and make excellent workspaces.Read More
I've been here less than a week and I've already learned how to make a movie in photoshop and a still life, not to mention learning stuff in my general classes as well. It is really expensive, but you learn a lot, and there are extensive scholarships. It's totally worth it.Read More
MCAD is a private college, a private ART college so yes it is quite spend-y. But I do believe it is worth the price to go to a school like MCAD with it's staff and faculty who have worked in their respective fields who have hands on experience and can use that knowledge to teach their students, thus preparing them a little better. On top of the wonderful faculty the dorms for MCAD are all located on campus, there is a Bistro which has a wide range of delicious and nutritious food, there are several restaurants within walking distance of campus, the school provides weekly trips to nearby grocery stores for students living on campus. Also on several occasions the school provides free food during events held at MCAD.Read More
