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.
