Most Helpful Review for Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design

The best part is you're not getting taught by TA's. You're instructors are all specialists in their subjects, so you know you're getting a great education. It's also great how much they emphasize liberal studies. I know from previously going to a 4yr public university, that Gen Eds can be a pain, but the ones offered at MIAD are all relevant to you and your studies. They work with Marquette University to make sure you're liberal studies are strong. This also makes a Minor in any subject a lot more accessible.

    A great school for the artist or designer looking for one-on-one interaction with faculty and a small, close-knit student body. Although we only have five majors, any one of them will prepare you to work as a professional in the art and design realm, and you'll leave with the advantage of visual literacy.

    MIAD is a great small community, and while there is not much overlap between majors, over the course of your time here you will become very close with the people in your major. The professors are largely working professionals and thus have relevant professional knowledge and wisdom to share. As with any discipline, if you want to succeed here, you have to really want it and put forth your best effort.

    This is a great school if you're serious about an art major, but it does not offer any minors or double majors that may be more practical. The school has excellent teachers. Remember, however, artists have attitudes.

    Since I am not attending yet I cannot go into great detail but I can say administration and financial aid have been extremely helpful and friendly. I am very impressed.

    An art school that caters not only to the traditional art students but to the design students as well. The majors differ from Painting to Industrial Design and much more. A lot of experts in the field to teach the prospective students.

    A very focused and disciplined school for it's unruly subject: art. In the first semester you already get an idea of what you will move onto in the following years to come. Your time is not wasted and there is so much to learn at MIAD! There is not a day that goes by that students here are not improving in some way and your self expression is something that is your most important tool.
