With a core faculty of ten internationally recognized artists and writers, an adjunct faculty of nine, and numerous guest faculty each term, with a maximum of 35 students, we have the highest faculty-to-student ratio of all comparable MFA programs. The result is an intense working environment where concentrated art-making is assured equally concentrated and careful 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 and writers famous and infamous as well as historians and philosophers for weekly seminars and our bi-annual conference series, as well as student exchange links with programs in Paris, Berlin and Cologne.

Closer to home, indeed at home, is Los Angeles, and the resources of 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 computer and moving image production labs. We make our public gallery spaces and project rooms available to all candidates, from the first term through the fourth, when every graduating student mounts a final solo exhibition.

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