eLearning faculty-student ratio
The same dedicated full-time professors who teach at our other SCAD locations teach the majority of courses on SCAD eLearning. The class schedule is enhanced with stellar adjunct faculty as appropriate, and no graduate assistants or interns teach our courses.
“I'm so grateful to SCAD and all of my professors. After refining my portfolio with projects inspired by coursework, I received an offer for an associate art director position.”Sarah Godfrey | B.A. visual communications, Westminster, Colorado
Access to renowned educators
The extraordinary faculty at SCAD is drawn from throughout the world, and the same professors who teach our on-the-ground courses also teach our eLearning courses. Many continue to publish, exhibit, design and consult, sharing their expertise and helping students establish professional connections as they grow creatively.
"eLearning allows me to extend my reach and help students all over the world reach their full potential."

“The various types of technology that SCAD eLearning provides make it easier for me to use all learning styles to ensure the information is retained, whether a student is an audio, visual or kinesthetic learner.”Sarah Adams | Graphic design professor
