Call for applications
Art Center’s Graduate Art MFA program is now accepting applications for fall 2015. Priority application deadline is February 1. For information about the program, click here.

The Graduate Art program at Art Center College of Design is based on intensive studio practice and rigorous academic coursework. The program is distinguished by its low faculty-to-student ratio that provides students with the attention and feedback they need to refine and achieve their artistic goals. Faculty and students are artists working in all genres—film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, performance and installation. A significant number of alumni have achieved national and international acclaim, and often return to share their insights and expertise as visiting faculty and guest lecturers.

Applications for fall 2015 can be found here.
