A deeply held commitment to creative and intellectual inquiry has been the key to the success of California College of the Arts over the last 100 years. CCA’s graduate programs offer rigorous and compelling courses taught by an award-winning faculty and visiting artists, designers, architects, and writers. The programs also host a robust lecture series and offer opportunities for meaningful interdisciplinary exchange both within the college’s graduate community and throughout the Bay Area.

Graduate Center Completed

CCA’s new Graduate Center was enhanced this fall with the addition of a two-story, 24,000-square-foot building that houses artist studios, offices, a student lounge, media studios, and classrooms. The San Francisco campus now has 100 individual studios for Fine Arts students and brand-new facilities for the Writing, Design, and Social Practice programs.

New Program: MFA in Film

The two-year, accelerated Graduate Program in Film will launch in fall 2008. The Academy Award–winning filmmaker Rob Epstein is chair of this all-digital program, which will be housed in a new, state-of-the-art facility on CCA’s San Francisco campus. The program aims to nurture an American new wave of filmmakers, teaching the elements of narrative storytelling and film aesthetics from a variety of international perspectives while giving students the tools to develop new ways to communicate their ideas. Film students will benefit from interaction with CCA’s creative community.

Epstein comments, “More than ever, there is interplay among the modes and methods of narrative fiction and documentary filmmaking. Our graduates will be well versed in all of these forms, with narrative as the common foundation, making our film school unique.”

New Program: MBA in Design Strategy

Recognizing the increasing importance of design and its impact on the business world, CCA is launching a new MBA in Design Strategy program, the first of its kind in the United States. Enrolling its initial class of students in fall 2008, this innovative program will unite the studies of design, finance, and organizational management in a unique curriculum aimed at providing students with tools to address today’s complex and interconnected market. Its approach encompasses performance, strategy, innovation, and the encouragement of meaningful, sustainable social change.

Chair Nathan Shedroff states, “Our goal is to create a center of thought on the synthesis of design and business, and to train the next generation of leaders in this rapidly changing business environment.” For more information on the MBA in Design Strategy, visit http://www.cca.edu/designmba
