“Great course – by far one of the most challenging in the MIA program.”

General remarks about the instructor:

“Kate was very knowledgeable and quick to answer questions.”

“Kate was great. I really liked her practical advice and straight-forward critiques –they were always very helpful. She gave us a good understanding of what would be expected of us in the real world if we were to tackle a project like our assignment.”

“She really took her time with me and was very clear about that needed to get done. She is only one of a few instructors who can actually communicate what she is thinking/envisioning for the project.”
