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
