Through lectures as well as symposia and workshops we strongly believe it is critical for our students to be exposed to the best and most progressive work out there.

Most Architecture and Interior Design lectures are available to watch at the CCA channel on YouTube.

Cinema Visionaries

Cinema Visionaries is a unique lecture series designed to bring film industry luminaries to CCA for public lectures and exclusive Film Program master classes.

The series launched in 2010 with a grant from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and is now made possible thanks to the generous support of Carla Emil and Rich Silverstein.
