At CIA, we’ve made an academic commitment to helping students build better futures by engaging them in community-based learning, real-world projects, and social practices. We call this commitment Cores + Connections, and it informs our curriculum across all 15 majors. At the core of CIA are academic and studio rigor and an energetic culture of world-class faculty mentorship. Add to that more than 200 connections to external partners and you have a set of collaborative, innovative, and imaginative educational opportunities that you will not find anywhere else.
