About The Academy of Art University, the largest private university of art and design in the United States, is educating students
for the art and design jobs of the 21st century. Established in 1929, the Academy is an output-based higher education
model that provides an inclusive admissions policy to all students, but imposes a rigorous curriculum that requires the
students to produce a portfolio of work that demonstrates a mastery of their field in order to graduate. Students are
taught by a faculty of professionals from the existing marketplace, both online and on campus in San Francisco, who
provide them with an understanding of what it takes to succeed in today’s business environment. The Academy’s
hands-on curriculum produces graduates who possess outstanding artistic and design skills—and equally as important,
the ability to put those talents to work immediately after graduation. As a result, Academy graduates are ready to
compete for and win the jobs of the 21st century in the fields of Acting, Advertising, Animation & Visual Effects,
Architecture, Art Education, Art History, Costume Design, Fashion, Fashion Journalism, Fashion Styling, Fine Art,
Game Design, Game Programming, Graphic Design, Illustration, Industrial Design, Interior Architecture & Design,
Jewelry & Metal Arts, Landscape Architecture, Motion Pictures & Television, Multimedia Communications, Music
Production & Sound Design for Visual Media, Photography, Studio Production for Advertising & Design, Visual
Development, Web Design & New Media and Art Teaching Credential, and Writing for Film, Television & Digital Media.

(BFA/MFA-IAD), NAAB (B-ARCH*, M-ARCH), and California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC). *B-ARCH
