10 Criteria to Help You Choose a Graphic Design School, Part 2

Here are the final 5 of 10 criteria that can help you choose a graphic design school:

6. Faculty Credentials: Review a list of the faculty at the graphic design school you’re considering. Where were they educated? What is their professional experience? Do they focus solely on teaching now or continue to work in either research or graphic design careers themselves?

7. Faculty Balance: There are two types of balance you have to consider. First, the ratio of full-time faculty versus adjunct faculty. This could go either way because full-time faculty offers you continuity while adjunct faculty can bring in specific expertise. Second, and far more important, is the student-to-faculty ratio. You want this to be as low as possible.

8. Alumni: Does the school have any famous alumni? Ask for a list of where alumni typically end up. Do they get jobs at firms that interest you? How long did it take them to get a good first job?

9. Student Activity: Are there student-run design associations? Can students regularly display their work at design exhibitions? Check out how much exhibition space the school has and how they use it.

10. School Facilities: One of the most important things to consider with any graphic design school is the quality of its facilities. Are there enough computers available? How about darkrooms? Studio space? Is the equipment old or new? Well-maintained or falling apart? Does the library have plenty of books and periodicals?

To get accurate answers to these questions, make sure to tour the campus. Talk to current students and faculty. Ask the school if you can contact some design alumni to find out their thoughts on their graphic design educations. That’s the key–don’t be afraid to ask questions. This is your future, after all.
