Varying institutions 
Large public research universities 
Universities with dedicated curriculum/course offerings (Culinary Institute, MIT, Otis College of Art & Design, etc.)
 
International Universities
Narrow down the country, consider environment (urban, suburban, primary language spoken, academic course offering, etc.) International universities are often affordable and can complete degree in 3 year. Less general education, more focus on academics. International universities are internationally accredited and often have clear admission guidelines.
