rightwhereitstartsandends asked: Do you go to concordia? I'm a highschool student about to graduate and I was considering concordia for photography. I was wondering if you liked it there or not and what program you're in :)
I used to go to Concordia and I was studying Sociology with a minor in Educational Psycology. It was only after 3 years of studies did I realize I wanted to persue an education and career in Art, I then transfered to Fine Arts.
Concordia is an amazing university. The Fine Arts and design programs are really great. The only ussue is that Concordia is not very interested in building YOUR career as an artist. It is the perfect school for those seeking to be independent artists who want to figure out how to make a living off their art on their own and dont really want guidance when it comes to career building. They dont really force you to learn how to self promote and develop your career (Its kind of up to you to figure that out) But thats great in another way because many artists dont want to have money and career as the sole drive behind their education and would rather learn it solely through actual involvement in the art scene and making art in the studio.
I honestly think Concordia + extreme involvement and networking in such a thriving city like Montreal is the perfect combo if you can build yourself up to the job you want. Go for it!
And goodluck! :)
