From business ventures to social justice, cultural research to experimental mediums, transportation systems to spatial experiences, ArtCenter’s renowned graduate programs offer designers, artists and filmmakers exceptional opportunities to create unique and personal career and life paths.

ArtCenter’s seven distinct graduate degree programs represent an exceptional opportunity to challenge the conventional and establish a unique personal trajectory—whether you seek to create an enterprise, change the way things are done or meaningfully contribute to artistic and intellectual discourse.

But the degrees themselves tell only one part of the story.
