I have been at the Art Institute of Atlanta for Vid. Production now for 8 quarters now. After this quarter, I am transferring to a University that has a great TV Broadcasting program and is at a REASONABLE PRICE. I've had a great experience here with the teachers, they are knowledgeable. Although, I don't think they have a very structured and set curriculum for Video. It seems out of order. Overall, I have learned a lot but I do not want to be in debt for the rest of my life from a $90,000 Bachelors degree in Vid. from the Art Institute of Atlanta. When I can achieve the same degree at a University. Which if students talked to there teachers or looked at there syllabus. They would see that none of them have graduated from an Institute, its been a University! Anyways, what has really been a show stopper for me is that I have never dealt with such morons when it comes to the Administration area, Registrars Office and Financial Student Services. Basically, anything with the Admin side. I have to keep up after them for everything and never had so many screws from a college before! These people have mismanaged so much of my paper work and finances. Thank god, I keep copies!The thing that really bothers me is when you confront them or need them to fix it. They do not even apologize for there mistakes.Bottom line for me is the cost is WAY TO HIGH and the frustration I have to go through with the admin side is enough to drive me away. Its very unprofessional!

They wouldnt take half of my credits from 3 years at SCAD. Thank God they didnt, I ended up at SCAD in atlanta. ACA is also up 400 so you will need to go through the toll if you live south.

This is a great school if you are aware of what you are getting in to. It is a private school and requires a lot of dedication so if you are unsure it will not be a good fit. This school is hard and is not the place for students who want an easy ride.

I graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta in 2005. I really enjoyed my time there. The small campus was one of the reasons I chose to go there. I didn't want to be overwhelmed by a large campus because I had moved to Atlanta from a smaller town. I liked the one-on-one time the teachers were able to give me as well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The on-campus supply store was very convenient. The parking was a little expensive, but the school is located within walking distance from 2 MARTA train stations. Overall, I would recommend this school.

Although this school's primary focus is on art, they also have a cooking school. They offer great cooking classes on the weekends for foodies that are just the right mix of beginner stuff and technical stuff.

AIA gave me so many options to get my career going. While I was in school I took courses on photography, video production, music production, and even some fashion business courses. I received my degree in Corporate Communications which is mostly photography and video. The Art Institute gave me a strong foundation for a career that has led to success. I value my education in art even though I'm a professional pilot.

My daughter went to Culinary School there and there are exhorbitant costs which are very hard to uncover until you enroll. They make it sound like eveyone will get financial aid . The professors were fair, at best, and when you graduate you are left with huge loans and a profession (cook) that is meagerly paid.

IT is a great school..they have many courses like interior ecoration, graphic desgining, advertising , media....My friend joined their commercial photography course and it turned out to be pretty good. He is doing so well in his field. They have made him so perfect can't imagine. Have seen so much change in the way he sees things now. It is a very good institute to shape a person's career.

The Art Institute offers great continuing Education Classes in cooking art and design. It is well worth the cost and the instructors are very thorough. I would take more classes.

I took a Saturday cooking class here. Lots of fun. Relatively small class. Also, Creations, their dining room that is run by students is fun to check out as well. There are fancier cooking schools and lessons out there, but this is a good one to really learn techniques. Of course, you get to eat what you cook too.
