ArtCenter’s Creative Direction department operates like a true agency, preparing students for creative careers outside the classroom

Our faculty of leading art directors and copywriters bring a fresh perspective on the field’s evolving landscape into the classroom. They arm our students with the skills and insights to become leaders in shaping their futures after graduation. Students develop powerful campaigns across traditional and new media—film, video, photography, graphic and interaction design, social media and digital entertainment—leaving them fluent in all languages of advertising. Graduates join a well-established network of alumni who served as creative leaders at top agencies around the world.
