USC Roski School of Art and Design

First organized in 1883, the USC Roski School of Art and Design is the oldest art school in Southern California. A supportive environment for experimentation in visual art of all media, the school encourages interdisciplinary, progressive approaches to studio art, design, curatorial practice and critical studies. With equal emphasis on making and thinking, the USC Roski School prepares artists, designers, curators and writers to contribute in new and meaningful ways both to their fields and to society at large. The School grants Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degrees at the undergraduate level and Master of Arts (MA), Master of Fine Arts (MFA), and Master of Public Art Studies (MPAS) degrees at the graduate level.
