About CAA

At the College of Art and Architecture, we understand that a career in design or the visual arts is about much more than creating intricate drawings. It's about shaping environments to improve lives.

That's why we prepare our students to become not only skilled artists or designers, but also expert problem solvers who are ready to use art and design to develop solutions that make a difference. They graduate equipped with the ingenuity, interdisciplinary knowledge and broad perspectives to tackle even the most perplexing issues.

How do we do it? It all starts with knowing what our students need to thrive – academically and professionally. 

Creative discovery. Practical experiences. Rich tradition. Personal faculty attention. Collaborative learning. Engaging research. You'll find it all here – infused with energy, passion and a commitment to excellence that drives everything we do.

"Create. Collaborate. Lead."


"Unleash the power of design and creativity in every aspect."
