California College of the Arts Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (2)
Graduate Programs Foundation Scholarship California College of the Arts offers a range of different artistic fields that serve as the backbone to all of its program. Beginning with the first year, all undergraduates are required to take core curriculum in (1) Drawing, (2) 2-D/ composition, (3) 3-D/ sculpture, and (4) 4-D/ film and web design. Second through fifth year (architecture) consist of core architectural studios as well as advanced studios (with different focus topics, such as tower, robotics, material). The advanced studios are intermixed between undergraduate and graduate students to allow more cross-pollination between the groups. The school is relatively small which was a nice contrast from my high school (hence why I had chosen to attend CCA), which allows each student to get to know a large number of the professors quite well. Upon graduating, the connections through the faculty (most of whom are also practicing professionals in their fields) helped opened doors for both employment and further academic studies.
I've had two jobs since graduating from college, both of which I obtained from connections made while in school. The experience I gained while in college was invaluable, not only for my career but for my personal growth. Go to school kids.
