Hey All, is anyone here familiar with the graphic design programs of CSULA / Cal State Los Angeles and CSUEB / Cal State East Bay? I need to choose between the two and can not find any good critical info re: the quality of their departments/programs.
I know they are not at all near the top notch art schools/programs that everyone here has been discussing -- but they are the only choices available since I (a) already have a BA (State-wide impaction -- many schools do not admit for 2nd BAs) and (b) I cannot afford a private school or UC.
A little background: As a young bright-eyed artist, I caved into great parental pressure to "keep art as a hobby" and pursue something more "serious." Ten years later I am stepping up to pursue what has always been in my heart -- but have also hit the walls from CSULB, CSUF, Cal Poly SLO, Poly Pomona, etc not admitting 2nd BAs.
Any help is greatly appreciated!!! :)
Also, does NASAD accreditation make a big difference? CSULA is NASAD accredited, while CSUEB is not (they used be in 2005 -- can't find out why no longer accredited).
p.s. I like CSUEB's curriculum better bc they offer a focus on multimedia -- but they are not NASAD accredited.
