Grad School Unscripted


At its core, Cranbrook is a truly radical experiment that hinges on the belief that extraordinary things can happen when people are given time and space to explore their work in a supportive and inclusive community. 

Each department is led by a full-time Artist, Designer, or Architect-in-Residence who is the sole faculty member and head of the department. Each department has an enrollment of approximately 15 students, who are selected by the Artist-in-Residence.

The 11 departments shape the rhythm of the Academy. In many ways, each department is its own unit, with an individualized calendar of activities, a roster of guest artists and critics, travel opportunities, departmental reading and discussion groups, and other special projects. Students are full-time active members of their departments, contributing to and developing the program and dialog from within.
