The Rhode Island School of Design is a fine arts college in the state capital of Providence and one of the first art and design institutions in the United States. RISD confers bachelor’s degrees in 21 fine arts fields of study such as Ceramics, Photography, and Furniture Design. As part of RISD’s emphasis of the liberal arts, all undergraduates are required to take one-third of their classes in the Liberal Arts division along with their BFA. The RISD campus is shared with Brown University and both schools work together to offer joint courses.
This school is an incredibly challenging school, however the ability to grow as an artist and a designer is limitless. The amount of talent and dedication here is something that doesn't exist at other schools and is something that forces a student to perform to their upmost ability. However, the intensity level is sometimes too high and seems like it has the potential to burn students out.
