Reviews of Bachelor of Fine Arts major in Advertising Arts graduates:

M. Y.
Studied BFA in Advertising Arts
at University of Santo Tomas , Manila
Graduated: 2014

Why did I choose this course:
I chose this course because I really love arts and fashion at the moment when I was deciding on what course to take up.

About my college education:
The whole course of Advertising is stressful but super fun. We get loads of assignments from making sculptures to making magazines. There were no boring class because the professors are so good in what they do they make you want to listen and know more about the subject.

It was quite difficult to pass the exams you really need to stay up all night to finish an exam because mainly there are two types of exams in our course. First, is the written exams which you take in school & the Second one is the take home one because it's about making sculptures, figure drawing, making comic books, conceptualizing an ad campaign and many other things.

In this course you really must be hardworking and organized to be able to finish everything on time so that you would be able to pass the subjects and the whole course. But even after all that the whole program is enjoyable learning is actually not that hard and stressful because you are having fun doing it.

My current job:
I just started looking for a job.

Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
If ever you consider taking up Advertising or Fine arts in general, my main advice is that you should really love arts and the whole concept of it, because when you do something you have to do it not because you have to, but because you want to. And it will be really hard for you to make an art or anything in general if you don't really have the heart for it. In fine arts everything is about appreciation and inspiration because what you are doing is not just anything, you're creating something new, something beautiful, something breath taking, you're making an art.
