Laying the foundation for all you create.

All ArtCenter students take classes in the Humanities and Sciences (H&S) Department, covering academic subjects often referred to as liberal arts and sciences. H&S classes work in conjunction with the studio programs to foster thoughtful and rigorous inquiry across the College, traversing cultural, historical, literary, philosophical and scientific perspectives. In this way, ArtCenter students receive a complete education, and upon graduation, have the knowledge required to map an informed individual path.
