The Art Institutes
Overview

The Art Institutes (Ai) are a system of schools that offer several programs based in fashion, design, media arts, and the culinary/cooking sector. These schools offer undergraduate and non-degree programs in addition to master's degree programs in certain fields, although not all programs are available at each location. Classroom instruction often mimics real world situations and is typically hands-on. Course schedules tend to be friendly for working adults with most locations offering evening and weekend classes. Overall, more than 66,000 students are enrolled at one of the Art Institute's 50 locations across the U.S. and Canada.
