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


Why did I choose this course:
I don't know exactly why.... But when I was in 4th year high school, we have these college week were some university will go on our school to introduce there school/college and they give us brochure and other freebies and when UST handed there brochure and I was looking for the set of courses they're offering, I suddenly got curious about what is an advertising art really is, then I got home and browse the internet about that and saw that it was all about designing (computer based design) and I also heard that FEU is also offering the same course so I tried having an entrance exam on FEU and I got in. Through the years I began to long more my course and learn a lot through out my learning process.

About my college education:
Studying my course was really fun maybe it's because I like what I'm doing though sometimes hard because you need a lot of patiences and sleepless nights just to finish all the plates that you have. I think when you love what you are doing you will never get tried of it and you will strive harder just to be better on what you want to do on the future. Probably the skills that you need to have is creativity and passion on this course and a lot of patience, when you don't have passion but you have creativity, the creativity that you have inside you will not shine because you don't have the passion on what you are doing and when you really like the course all the things you will learn through out your stay in the university will be fun for you and will certainly enjoy it!

My current job:
None at the Moment but I am on a job hunting spree. But I'm doing freelance job right now.

Am I using what I learned in college:
My professor told us that we can land on different jobs but still on the same category as my course. Especially I'm in freelance job right now I can create logo/layout for label packaging, I can create layout for ads, I can create creative brief, I can design whatever I want to design as long as I know it (lol), we are also taught how to do sculptures, fashion designing (print shirts and stuff), paint using oil/acrylic/posterpaint/watercolor/mixed media etc.

Do I recommend studying Bachelor of Fine Arts Major in Advertising Arts:
Yes I am gladly recommending it to whoever want to take up this course because you will learn a lot you can even use it to create your own business like advertising agency, you can create your own photo studio, you can even put up a clothing line. Pertaining on the employment opportunities I'm in a job hunt right now and I have been to bunch of interviews right now and I can say that you can find lots of job opening when it come to this job.

Advice to people who are thinking of studying this course:
If you are into designing/drawing/painting/arts etc. I advice that do what you love and what you enjoy to do after all learning should be fun and enjoyable. You will learn a lot of things from manual painting/ drawing to digital arts to photography to making 3D to creating your own campaign etc.
