San Francisco and Southern California Campuses
Identical curricula and the same full-time faculty are available at our locations in Southern California and San Francisco. Additionally, local industry professionals teach electives that allow students to specialize and gain the necessary depth within their chosen area of expertise.
Your residency in the program is an opportunity to build a network of professional contacts that can serve as the foundation for lifelong career growth. Faculty, guest speakers, staff, alumni, and fellow students provide referrals to key personnel for insight about career strategies, organizations of interest, and new opportunities.
Internships last the duration of the program. Over 23 months, our students complete an average of 1,100 hours applying academic foundations to practical training in the industry of their choice.
Each class of students begins the program as a cohort, a single group of peers who start and finish the program together. The cohort serves both as a learning community of scholars and a support network. This model of education allows faculty to tailor practical examples and assignments in the courses to the unique needs and interests of individuals in each cohort.
Three new cohorts start each year: one at both program locations in July, and one at the San Francisco program in January.
