All programs are studio critique-based and focused on the creative act of making. Theory serves as a conceptual tool, but in the end, it is the connection between idea and form that matters most. It is this principle that forms a common dialogue across disciplines at Cranbrook, making it a truly unique place.
New this year is the Cranbrook Academy of Art Director’s Fellowship Program. In 2019, the Academy will award five full-tuition supported fellowships. Fellowships will be awarded to one incoming student per department in the Architecture, Fiber, Metalsmithing, Photography and Print Media departments.
Fellows will be nominated by the Academy’s Artists-in-Residence, with the final awards granted at the discretion of the Academy Director. Selection will be based on the strength of the application, with priority given to students who contribute to the Academy’s goal of increasing diversity. There is no separate application; all accepted students in the awarding departments who are U. S. citizens or permanent residents will be considered.
Cranbrook Academy of Art is a graduate school offering Master of Architecture and Master of Fine Arts degrees only. We do not offer bachelor degrees, associate degrees, or continuing education programs.
