Question Best art programs

What universities or art schools offer PhDs in "figure drawing" or "graphic design" or "sculpture" or "art history"?
What schools offer BFA or better in "studio art"?

I put this in the wrong place! Can the mods move it to the "Student's Dorm"?

I can't agree with you on all of those, but some for sure. The best programs I know for ceramics is at Cal State Long Beach (and cheaper too!), California College of the Art in San Francisco, and the Tyler School at Temple in PA. And yes CalArts too, but it costs the most. CalArts is great for performance art like dance, and music too; Painting, animation, etc. as well. It's considered one of the best schools in the world. I mean, overall, the best/top art programs in the world are probably Yale, RISD and CalArts and UCLA.

MICA is a great school, and has a good sculpture program. And the Pomona Scripps (Claremont) colleges in CA are fantastic - some of my favorite artists have been produced there. They are not well known, but they have an outstanding program. No cookie-cutter artists from there.

Otis in Los Angeles is also good for Fashion and art history, design, painting/drawing, new media.

Art Center in Pasadena, CA is excellent for design, illustration, and graphic design.

RISD is a great all around school for everything but also very expensive.

Syracuse University also an excellent art school. I also like what I see out of Ohio State and Louisiana State.

CUNY Hunter in NY has a good Studio Art program, as well as Columbia, Savanna, and Iowa.

That's al I can think of now. Hope it helps. Read about some of these online.

Re: Best art programs

About USCal's painting and drawing program - do they offer graduate degrees in painting or drawing? It is not clear from their web site.
