With a core faculty of 12 internationally recognized artists and writers, an adjunct faculty of 21 and a total of 35 students, we have the highest faculty-to-student ratio of all comparable MFA programs. The result is an intense work environment where concentrated art-making is assured equally concentrated and careful 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 and writers―famous and infamous―as well as 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.

Closer to home, indeed at home, is Los Angeles, one of the world’s great art capitals. Closer still is the world-class 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 candidates, from the first term through the sixth, when every graduating student mounts a final solo show.
