San Francisco Art Institute

San Francisco Art Institute, SFAI, traces its roots to the San Francisco Art Association which was established in 1871 and led to the creation of the California School of Design in 1873. The institute was renamed California School of Fine Arts in 1916, and ultimately came to be known as San Francisco Art Institute in 1961. The SFAI campus occupies 4 acres in San Francisco, California.

San Francisco Art Institute confers the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, Master of Arts, and Master of Fine Arts degrees. Several post-baccalaureate certificate programs of study are also available. The different courses are offered through the following 2 divisions:

  • School of Interdisciplinary Studies
  • School of Studio Practice

SFAI students publish a newsletter known as the "Dialogue". The institute is home to an honor society, ad honorem. Students are also involved in other clubs and organizations including the Alternative Media Coalition, Art After Hours, Gamers Club, the Indigenous Arts Coalition, the Productive Publishing Club, the Shaved Apes Motorcycle Club, and SFAI Racquet Club.
