California College of the Arts. Empowering students to make art that makes a difference.
California College of the Arts (CCA), founded in 1907, offers studies in 21 undergraduate and seven graduate majors in the areas of fine art, architecture, design, and writing. The college has world-class facilities at its two campuses in San Francisco and Oakland. More than 500 highly regarded artists and scholars instruct a population of approximately 1,475 undergraduate and 490 graduate students. The average class size is 18.
Students at CCA discover cross-disciplinary opportunities, innovative courses with real-world applications, outstanding faculty, successful alumni, and a world-class campus environment. Wherever their art takes them-producing an experimental film, painting outside the canvas, designing sustainable products, or working within the community-CCA offers an ideal environment to make it happen. Students develop competencies that will serve them well, both while they are in school and long after they graduate. Our alumni have been successful in all kinds of creative endeavors.
CCA students begin making their mark well before graduation day. Just in the past year, two Fashion Design seniors were offered prestigious internships with Nicole Miller. A video submission by two Film students was awarded the grand prize in the national Vote Again Video Contest. Alumni Jay Nelson and Rachel Kaye, together with Nelson's multifunctional vehicle/camper/sculpture, were featured on the cover of ReadyMade magazine. And Lia Tjandra (Graphic Design 1997) received numerous awards for her design of Rebecca Solnit's book Infinite City, a cartographic ode to San Francisco.
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
