Online MFAs

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010


I just discovered that the Online Graduate Student Showcase (the website where students can see MFAs from various departments) has been updated.

There are now Illustration, Animation & Visual Effects, and Interior Architecture & Design MFAs available.

Currently the only departments that aren’t covered are Game Design, Multimedia Communications, and Music for Visual Media, but I don’t believe any of those departments actually have completed MFAs at this point.

If you have online students asking about MFAs, be sure to let them know about this page:

Digital Tutors

Wednesday, December 1st, 2010

Hi Everyone,

We now have access to Digital Tutors.  I just added a link to the Online Articles & Reference page this morning, and I am in the process of adding it to various subject guides.  I’m also in the process of writing a blog post about this new resource.

You may start to get questions about this resource.  If you haven’t taken a look sign up for an account and look around.

The link to sign up for a new account or to sign in if you already have an account is here:

You must sign up with an Academy of Art University Email Address (this is for faculty and staff and for students).  If students don’t know, they can access their academy email account through the My Academy website ( and then clicking the link along the right side (”Student Email Login”).

If a student asks to sign up with a different email account (their personal gmail or yahoo account for example) you can have them email me or we can get them signed up w/ a different email address - they must provide their name and student id to do this.

Let me know if you have any questions.
