Why Should I Choose CCS?
It’s the question we hear the most. And one that’s easiest to answer. Just listen to what our students, alumni, and corporate partners have to say about why they chose CCS.
The real question is “Why wouldn’t you choose CCS?”.
CCS provides you the opportunity to study at a world-class institution that not only gives you the knowledge to become a great artist or designer, but also the experience to prove it through your work. You’ll learn from professionals who know the ins and outs of their industries. You will benefit from small class sizes that offer more individual attention than you’ll find on other campuses.
CCS alumni know success. They are entrepreneurs. They are working artists. Fortune 500 companies hire them. The stories you will watch here are a testament to the impact CCS alumni are making in the art/design world. All of them dared to dream big. Let their stories inspire you.
Research projects are highly conceptual and allow students the opportunity to participate in creative, research-based assignments within real-world design parameters. Our corporate partners commit design and technical staff to students by providing guidance, expertise and feedback. Organizations financially sponsor conceptual design projects for CCS students and encourage inventive and unique design concepts.
This past year, through the organization of Career Services, the College for Creative Studies welcomed 227 companies on campus for individual company visits, sponsored research projects and recruiting and professional practices events. Through these visits, students had the opportunity to meet with industry professionals, receive portfolio reviews, practice their interviewing skills and potentially receive an internship or job opportunity.
