“SCAD has really given me the luxury of experimenting and putting my work out there for critique. I’ve already had work in exhibitions in Atlanta, New York, and I have one up right now in Hong Kong.”

“The diversity of graduate students has helped me develop new perspectives. It offers a rich knowledge that you would not get at any other place, even if you’re working for a company.”
Deepti Kundra
M.F.A design management, Chennai, India
