Located in the River North neighborhood, just a short distance from downtown Chicago, SAE Chicago is the premier institution for Creative Media Education in the Mid-West. We join the 57 other SAE campuses around the world committed to educational excellence, bringing that history and experience to SAE’s newest campus in the United States. SAE Chicago occupies over 19,000 sq. feet and includes numerous studios, workstations, classrooms, and a theater to create the optimal learning experience for every student. We believe strongly in traditional lecture style classes to teach theory. However, a strong emphasis on hands-on application and individual training is also built into the curriculum to provide practical experiences that mirror what happens in a non-academic setting.
SAE expert faculty provides students with industry standard best practices, so our graduates are fully prepared for entry-level jobs in the industries we teach. Graduates also have the distinct advantage of joining SAE's International Alumni Network, comprised of industry professionals all over the world from the past 30 years.
