Academics at ArtCenter

At ArtCenter, we’re not anticipating the future. We’re creating it.

ArtCenter students go beyond aesthetics and technical expertise to think critically, intelligently and humanely about their practice and its effects on others. Our undergraduate, graduate and Public Programs—all remarkably diverse in their areas of emphasis, methods of teaching and curricula—stress this core sensibility while pushing students to create meaningful work.
