Our alumni are forever connected through a shared transformative educational experience. From every walk of life and every corner of the globe, our alumni inspire, lead and create change.


We believe that learning environments should both inspire creativity and have a meaningful impact on their surrounding community.

Serving as a gateway to ArtCenter’s degree programs, Public Programs provide access to exceptional instruction, facilities and networking opportunities.

The faculty really creates a family here for us, which I think a lot of students appreciate.
