Support for these talks was generously provided by Jack Shear, Brenda R. Potter, Sprüth Magers, Blum & Poe, Alan Hergott, Hannah Hoffman, and David Kordansky.

With a core faculty of 10 internationally recognized artists and writers, 15 to 30 visiting and adjunct faculty per term and a total of 35 students, we have one of the lowest student-to-faculty ratios among comparable MFA programs. The result is an intense work environment where concentrated art-making is assured equally concentrated faculty attention, whether within specific disciplines or among them: in film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, installation, performance and everything in between.

Fundamental to our program are one-on-one studio visits with faculty and rigorous critical, academic and practical coursework. We extend our reach internationally, inviting artists, writers, historians and philosophers for weekly seminars and our biannual conference series. Coming from and going to Europe respectively, our artist-in-residence partnership and student exchange link us with programs in Paris, Berlin and Cologne. Our student and faculty exchanges link us with programs in key European art capitals.

Closer to home, indeed at home, is Los Angeles, one of the world’s great art capitals. Closer still is the renowned design school to which we are connected, with leading-edge software and hardware technology and the equipment that goes with it. On site, we provide students with individual studios, a fabrication shop, several gallery spaces, and dedicated computing and moving-image production labs. We make our public gallery spaces and project rooms available to all our students, from their first term through graduation, when they mount their final solo show.
