Why should you attend Hussian School of Art ®? We provide a one-of-a-kind art education – offering career preparation, a creative focus, an inspiring campus, and a nurturing community.
Hussian offers four years of professional development that enables you to be confident and competent as you embark on your career journey in the visual arts after graduation. Our instructors are industry-proven, working professionals who stress professionalism from day one and bring real-world situations to the classroom. The Hussian curriculum includes interactive, digital-based courses starting freshman year that will build your marketable knowledge and skills, enabling you to better compete for graphic design, visual communication, and digital media jobs such as web design, mobile application development, and digital game design. Hussian students also have access to our large alumni and faculty network, which serves as a great resource for internship and career placements after graduation.
Hussian’s concentrations consist entirely of hands-on and creative coursework, providing students with the opportunity to grow their talent in a unique educational setting. This exclusive focus on art offers a superior educational alternative for students who prefer an art-intensive curriculum. As a Hussian student, your education will include a fundamental foundation in the fine arts, based on our belief that a successful visual arts professional must be able to realize a creative concept from the drawing table to the final, often digitally created, end product. In addition to fundamentals, you will be trained in creating the digital products that we play, work with, and interact with every day, through courses like Motion Graphics, Digital Game Construction, and Digital Multimedia.
Hussian is conveniently located in the heart of Old City Philadelphia, near historic landmarks and city attractions that provide creative stimulation and a lively campus experience. We are housed in the Bourse Building, which is easily accessible for most students via public transportation. Our campus provides the perfect combination of a real-world working atmosphere, abundant studio and design space, and artistic motivation – all of which inspire you to be at your best.
At Hussian, students are people, not numbers. Our close-knit, family-like community encourages the individual creative and professional growth of every student every day. “Connectivity” is vital to our success. Many of our alumni remain involved with Hussian, as members of our faculty and staff, internship and employer network, and program advisory committee. Their deep connection with Hussian opens doors to our students, providing access to a network of internship and employment opportunities.
