Columbia College Chicago

Art + Design

Designers create the look and feel of just about everything we use, inhabit, watch, read and buy. Artists and art historians reframe the ways that we view and interact with the world.

Interdisciplinary coursework, entrepreneurial thinking and collaboration are all part of the Columbia experience. You’ll develop an aesthetic and critical sense and solve design challenges with guidance from our outstanding faculty, access to learning materials and specialized instruction in emerging technologies.

You’ll be part of a diverse and dynamic student body in Chicago, an extraordinary city in the history of design. At Columbia, you’ll build the portfolio and contacts you’ll need to be job ready at graduation.
