Pick a Discipline. And Cross Many.

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) is distinct in the way it provides an interdisciplinary curriculum, cutting-edge facilities, and the necessary freedom to develop as artists, designers, and scholars. At the same time SAIC strives for a level of rigor, investigation, and cultural relevance that makes the student's educational experience truly special. Central to that experience are the renowned faculty of artists, scholars, and leading practitioners and the over 2,000 provocative and engaging courses they teach each year.
