The New England School of Art & Design is accredited by The National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), the national accreditation agency for art and design and the Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA), a specialized body recognized by the US Department of Education. Not every school that offers courses or programs in art and design is accredited and that’s important to consider when choosing where you’ll study. We are very proud to have earned these specialized accreditations as doing so speaks to both the rigor and the caliber of the curricula and to the success of our alumni in their respective fields. Our programs go through a regular review and evaluation process performed by teams of art and design professionals and academicians from across the nation, who carefully examine the quality of the work being produced by our undergraduate and graduate students. During our most recent review periods we were pleased to have been issued the maximum length of re-accreditation by both NASAD and CIDA as doing so speaks volumes to the confidence both bodies have in our programs.
In addition to The School of Art & Design’s NASAD and CIDA accreditations, Suffolk University is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
