Drawing from a diverse array of fields, ArtCenter’s Graduate Environmental Design faculty takes students beyond the confines of style to consider the links between the psychological, physical, emotional and sensory effects of design. Our graduates become uniquely qualified to advance the impact and discipline of environmental design.

Our faculty is comprised of renowned designers with backgrounds in residential and commercial architecture, lighting and furniture design, spatial and exhibition design as well as social impact design applications. Furthermore, our faculty of working professionals bears degrees from the world’s top academic institutions, including Harvard and MIT, and instructs students to approach each design challenge with an analytical and research-driven mindset.
