California Institute Of The Arts

California Institute of The Arts, popularly called CalArts, was established in 1961 by Walt and Roy Disney in Valencia, California, through the merger of two other institutes, namely, the Los Angeles Conservatory of Music and the Chouinard Art Institute. The campus of CalArts is situated on 60 acres of land, and caters to more than 1,000 students.

California Institute of The Arts is the first institute in California to grant the Bachelor of Fine Arts as well as the Masters of Fine Arts degree in literary, visual, and performing arts. It also offers undergraduate and advanced certificate programs. The institute is divided into the following six schools:

  • School of Art
  • School of Critical Studies
  • School of Film/Video
  • School of Theater
  • The Herb Alpert School of Music
  • The Sharon Lund School of Dance

Students of CalArts are involved in a variety of clubs and organizations. Among those available on campus are the Creative Arts Collective, the Modeling/Runway Club, the Hip Hop Club, the Asian Student Union, the Queer Arts Collective, the Musicians Without Borders, the CalArts Chapter, and the Stitch & Bitch Club. The institute also publishes a magazine called "CalArts", and two internationally acclaimed journals called "Black Clock" and "Afterall".
