Philadelphia's Hussian School of Art Signs Agreement with Harrisburg University
The partnership fuses Hussian’s expertise in commercial art with Harrisburg University’s expertise in technology to prepare students for careers in game creation, marketing, instructional design and visual communication.
Established in 1946 and located in the Bourse Building in Old City Philadelphia, Hussian offers an associate in specialized technology (AST) degree for commercial art with three concentrations:
“This agreement brings Harrisburg University to Philadelphia and it is a natural fit for both institutions. The curriculum at both Hussian and Harrisburg University is career focused where students gain practical experience from the outset. The depth of program offerings and the breadth of experiences that we each offer is structured to prepare students for careers and life after graduation,”
This agreement allows current students and Hussian graduates to complete courses that count toward a bachelor’s or master’s degree.
“This is an excellent opportunity for our students to continue their education. We are exceedingly proud that Harrisburg University recognizes the quality of talent generated from Hussian School of Art. Both institutions and cities will benefit from the convergence of Hussian's creative talent and Harrisburg University's impressive command of new media technology,”
Information about the courses will be available at a November 10th Open House at the Hussian School of Art. Harrisburg University faculty will be in attendance. The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. For additional information about the Open House, click http://www.hussianart.edu/
The Hussian School of Art was founded in 1946 by John Hussian, a member of Philadelphia's art community and a lecturer at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Graphic art and fine art remained part of the curriculum until the early 1960s when, because of its reputation, the Pennsylvania Department of Education and the Veterans Administration suggested the school focus solely on commercial art. The school was incorporated in 1965. Hussian is a nationally accredited career school by ACCSC (Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges) and is very active in the regional professional art community.
Founded in 2001 to address Central Pennsylvania's need for increased opportunities leading to careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, Harrisburg University offers 26 undergraduate and 13 graduate program options and is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
