At the College for Creative Studies, first-year students can enter their chosen department and concentrate their studies in one area or spend their first semester undeclared and take an orientation class to learn about the 12 studio majors. While students are immersed in their chosen area of study immediately upon entering CCS, they are also encouraged to take classes outside of their major to broaden their skills.

Students are required to take courses in our foundation program to help establish the basics and give students a taste of the different paths they can follow. Additionally, students will take courses in liberal arts to help make their studies as well rounded as possible and have the option to choose an academic minor or the business concentration .

Each department emphasizes four distinct components of a visual arts education: technical skill, aesthetic sensibility, conceptual ability, and practical experience, combining studio and academic classes with more individualized instruction.
