FOUNDATION PROGRAM
The Foundation first-year course of study consists of Foundation Core, Survey of Art I and II (HA 115 and HA 116), and English (ENGL 101 and ENGL 103). The fashion department is an exception and has its own first-year program. The Foundation core helps students evaluate their previous art experience in the light of new ideas and techniques. This grounding in underlying concepts and principles of the visual arts puts professional goals in a historical perspective. Before specialization in the sophomore year, the core curriculum encourages flexibility, adaptability, and the experience of design and art as wide-ranging enterprises.


This program is Residential.

NOTE 1: "Full-Time Equivalent" is the common way to measure the relative size of colleges. This adjusts for differences in the percentage of part-time students (or faculty). For example: one full-time student = 1 FTE; three half-time students = 1.5 FTE, etc. NOTE 2: Retention and graduation rates for Art Center College of Design are calculated using the entire new student population entering Spring, Summer, and Fall terms (including a large population of transfer students), and not only "First-Time, Full-Time Freshmen" as required by the U.S. Department of Education. Thus these numbers are different than the retention and graduation reported to the U.S. Department of Education. NOTE 3: Geographic distribution is reported for first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates. NOTE 4: Includes all institutional scholarships and grants, but does not include College Work Study or third party awards. NOTE 5: Data presented is drawn from the most recent school year available. NOTE 6: All $-amounts are shown in US dollars. Canadian $-amounts were converted to US dollars using exchange rate at the time the data were collected ($1 Canadian = $0.70 US).
