The program in Visual & Critical Studies at CCA trains creative leaders in visual and critical fields. We believe that enacting positive social transformation requires skills in critical thinking, visual analysis, and visual communication. Students at CCA work closely with thinkers and makers who cross disciplinary boundaries. At CCA, you will discover and contribute to the rich cultural life of the college and the San Francisco Bay Area, an international hub of innovation. Ten years from now our visual, virtual, and cultural environments will look very different than they do today. VCS alumni will occupy positions of influence across the cultural field.
