About The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online Division

The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online Division is a division of The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, established in 1921.

Classes are asynchronous: Students login to their classes five out of seven days a week, without regard to their physical location or time of day. We can extend the benefit of our education in the creative and applied arts to adults whose full personal and professional lives, geographic location or physical abilities limit their ability to attend classes traditionally. All a student needs is access to the Internet and the specified computer hardware and software.

Classes are interactive: The process is not passive! Students engage not only with the lecture materials, assignments and readings, but also with each other, through focused, facilitated discussions.

Classes are learner-centered: Students develop their own capabilities and talents using many informational sources, including lectures, readings, life experience, projects and group discussions. The facilitator aids the process by addressing student needs, interjecting their industry experience, and providing direction to create a unique learning experience for each student.

For more than 80 years, The Art Institute has tailored its programs to meet the demands of an ever-evolving job market. That's why we offer many technology-driven programs as well as a classic curriculum prepared with the help of program-specific advisory boards made up of industry professionals.Learn more about this program by requesting a free information package from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online Division.
