FOUNDATION PROGRAM
All first-year BFA students begin with two semesters of studio arts courses. The intensive nature of these courses prepare the student to move into a studio area of special interest unique to their specific discipline regardless of major. The Studio Arts program provides sufficient breadth to allow the student the opportunity to investigate various media and personal expression while providing depth in preparation for their chosen major specialization beginning in the sophomore year.


This program is Residential.

NOTE 1: "Full-Time Equivalent" is the common way to measure the relative size of colleges. This adjusts for differences in the percentage of part-time students (or faculty). For example: one full-time student = 1 FTE; three half-time students = 1.5 FTE, etc. NOTE 2: Retention and graduation rates for Art Center College of Design are calculated using the entire new student population entering Spring, Summer, and Fall terms (including a large population of transfer students), and not only "First-Time, Full-Time Freshmen" as required by the U.S. Department of Education. Thus these numbers are different than the retention and graduation reported to the U.S. Department of Education. NOTE 3: Geographic distribution is reported for first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates. NOTE 4: Includes all institutional scholarships and grants, but does not include College Work Study or third party awards. NOTE 5: Data presented is drawn from the most recent school year available. NOTE 6: All $-amounts are shown in US dollars. Canadian $-amounts were converted to US dollars using exchange rate at the time the data were collected ($1 Canadian = $0.70 US).
