Post Bacc at UC Berkeley Extension


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, 


I was recently accepted into the Post Bacc at UC Berkeley Extension school. There is not as much information as I would like on the website so I am wondering if anyone has any type of experience with this program and if they found it worth while? I am really working to improve my portfolio right now to eventually apply to MFA programs. I do not have a BFA from undergrad so I am really trying to enhance studio skills now particularly in illustration/drawing. The UC berk program is a lot cheaper than other post bacc programs because it is a public school but I am wondering what people think is a good move. I am also looking at Post Bacc at the SMFA in Boston. Please help!!

It all depends on how much funding you are willing to spend. There is no promise that you get into an MFA program after a post Bacc. You could look into fellowships and gain the same experience without the expense. I had several offers but opted against them because I am at a different stage in my artist journey and did not want to add cost to my education nor delay my MFA any further.
