Graphic Design Student Testimonial

I feel especially prepared for the job market after I graduate because I followed the advice of my professors and decided to upgrade my degree from a Bachelor of Science to a Bachelor of Fine Arts. The additional time in SADA’s BFA program equipped me with all the essentials I will need as I head out into the workforce, and it helped me to further develop my portfolio.
