Cranbrook Academy of Art

United States of America

NA

Founded in 1932, the Cranbrook Academy of Art is one of the USA’s leading graduate schools of architectureart and design. Known as the cradle of American modernism, it continues to have a significant impact on the world of art, architecture, and design.

In many ways, the program at the Academy is simple: 150 graduate students work together and are mentored by 10 Artists-in-Residence for a full-time two-year studio-based study.  Like real life, graduate study at the Academy is self-directed and relatively unscripted. And yet, students are guided, supported, and challenged by the Academy community. The Academy offers graduate study for a Master’s Degree in one of 10 departments: 2D Design (MFA)3D Design (MFA)Architecture (M.Arch)Ceramics (MFA)Fiber (MFA)Metalsmithing (MFA)Painting (MFA)Photography (MFA)Print Media (MFA) and Sculpture (MFA).At Cranbook the structure of the program develops from each department outward rather than from the top down. Departmental activities provide the central structure for students. Each department follows its own rotation of critiques, reading and discussion groups, student presentations, travel, and visits with guest artists and critics.

International students looking to study at Cranbook are eligible for consideration for Non-Need Based Aid only. Ranked as the country’s top graduate-only program in architecture, design and fine art, Cranbrook Academy of Arts is a place for students who are looking to leave their MFA program prepared to immediately enter the industry or open their own studio practice.

Notable Alumni: Eero Saarinen (20th-century Finnish American architect and industrial designer noted for his neo-futuristic style), Anne Wilson (Chicago-based visual artist)
