The Art Institutes Stats, Info and Facts

Look around. Creativity is everywhere. And everything from the sofa you're sitting on to the clothes you're wearing, from the video games you play to the food you eat, started as an idea in somebody's head. People who can innovate are in demand as never before - because the world needs new ideas like never before.

To take your place in this new world of possibilities you should start with the kind of focused education you'll find at an Art Institutes school. We offer a collaborative, supportive environment where you'll work with professional-grade technology, and experienced instructors who will guide you and help you develop the skills you need to compete in the marketplace.

We also offer a range of benefits to assist veterans and Active Duty military, including flexible evening and weekend options with online classroom components, accommodation assistance for those with disabilities, and tuition and admission fee waivers for military personnel qualify.

First, explore the basic areas of study and think about which one lines up with your personal and career goals.

Visual thinkers and problem solvers find outlets for their creativity in the world of DESIGN. If you express your ideas in colors, shapes, and textures, you may be joining them as a graphic designer. Or as an advertising professional, communicating using everything from logos, packaging, and web banners to TV ads. You might use your talent to highlight form and function in working and living spaces as an interior designer. Or as an industrial designer, thinking up new products and making existing ones better.

Try to imagine your favorite video game without the cool characters, landscapes, and sound. Your favorite movies minus the mind-bending special effects. Music with none of the depth and dimension. The career paths in the digital world of MEDIA ARTS are where you could combine your creativity with the latest technology to produce animation and special effects, video games, websites, sound design, or film and video. It's all about delivering information and entertainment in a growing industry where the only limit is your imagination.

When you combine your love of FASHION with the right education, you get a future that fits you just right. Whether it's creating the clothes for the runway, or running the retail shop, there's a program - and a career - for you. And you don't have to become a famous fashion designer to pursue your passion. If your eye for style is matched by your head for business, you can make your name in fashion marketing, merchandising, or management.

Today's world is all about choices. And today's consumers want more - and more exotic - CULINARY options. Which means that professionals who can apply an international approach to create a wide range of culinary experiences are in demand in the industry. And there's more to create than just food. If your love of cuisine extends beyond the kitchen, consider culinary management, where you'll blend all the ingredients, from cuisine to ambience, to keep customers coming back and help make any establishment a success.

No matter which path you choose, there's never been a better time to follow it to a creative career - starting with a focused education that gives you the tools you need to build the future you want.
