Excerpt: The School of Visual Arts (SVA), is an art school located in Manhattan, New York City, and is widely considered to be one of the leading art schools in the United States. It was established in 1947 by co-founders Silas H. Rhodes and Burne Hogarth as the Cartoonists and Illustrators School and was renamed in 1956. It offered its first degrees in 1972. SVA is a member of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD), a consortium of 36 leading art schools in the United States. SVA is a fully accredited art college that requires the completion of a four-year, 120 credit course for a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. This includes 72 accumulated credits worth of studio classes (where the curriculum requires the creation of some type of art), 30 accumulated credits of Humanities and Sciences courses, 12 accumulated credits of art history courses, and six discretionary credits. The Master of Fine Arts degree requires completion of 60 credits and a thesis project, while the Master of Professional Studies degree requires 30-36 credits and a thesis project, depending on the program. The Master of Arts in Teaching degree requires the completion of 36 credits and a thesis project. As of 2000, the undergraduate degrees offered at SVA are Advertising, Animation, Cartooning, Digital Art, Film & Video, Fine Arts, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Design, Photography, and Visual & Critical Studies.
