About The Art Institute of Tucson

The Art Institutes is a system of over 50 schools across North America. We provide hands-on education in the creative and applied arts by offering master's, bachelor's and associate's degree programs as well as non-degree programs. For employers, we provide an important source of culinary, design, fashion and media arts professionals.

At The Art Institutes schools, our curriculum is carefully scrutinized and developed by industry professionals and prominent employers who tell us what skills are needed in the workplace. This means that your education is relevant, practical and hands-on. In fact, the classroom often mimics what you'll find on the job. Members of our faculty also continue to work professionally in the fields they are teaching*, so you'll have an opportunity to learn what's currently happening in your chosen field. In all of our programs, technology and media help you to realize your vision.
