Program students strengthen their skills of representation, technical skills and understanding of the physiological and psychological aspects of lighting and architecture.

Its worth it...on ground

I am a current student in the MFA Graphic Design program at AAU. I can't speak for any other of the schools offerings, but my program is great, and hard....very hard. Yes the school does have an open enrollment policy, but I don't think that's a bad thing. Honestly, anyone with enough drive can learn graphic design. Schools with portfolio requirements keep some very talented people from receiving quality education. Now, just because everyone gets in, does NOT mean that everyone gets out. There is a reason that the school has something like 80% attrition in the grad program. There are two progress evaluations before you can enter directed study, if you don't pass those evaluations you have to retake classes until your work is good enough to continue
