About California College of the Arts

Founded in 1907, California College of the Arts (CCA) educates students to shape culture and
society through the practice and critical study of art, architecture, design, and writing. Benefitting
from its San Francisco Bay Area location, the college prepares students for lifelong creative
work by cultivating innovation, community engagement, and social and environmental
responsibility. 
 
CCA offers a rich curriculum of 22 undergraduate and 11 graduate programs in art, design, architecture, and writing taught by a faculty of expert practitioners, and attracts promising students from across the United States and from 55 countries around the world. Graduates are highly sought-after by companies such as Pixar/Disney, Apple, Intel, Facebook, Gensler, Google, IDEO, Autodesk, Mattel, and Nike, and many have launched their own successful businesses. 
 
CCA is creating a new, expanded college campus at its current site in San Francisco that will open during the 2021–2022 academic year. Spearheaded by Studio Gang architects, the new campus design will be a model of sustainable construction and practice; will unite the college’s programs in art, crafts, design, architecture, and writing in one location to create new adjacencies and interactions; and will provide more student housing than ever before.
