The Art Institutes (HQ) – Why Work For Us?

 About Ai

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. Our faculty members 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.

Every Art Institutes school has a Career Services department with staff dedicated to helping students market themselves and providing support services for students to use in pursuing employment opportunities in their chosen field. From helping you pursue part-time job opportunities while you are attending school to actively supporting soon-to-be graduates' job search, faculty and staff are committed to providing students with the support they need.

In 2012, the eight Art Institutes schools in California (San Diego, Los Angeles, Hollywood, Inland Empire, Orange County, San Francisco, Sacramento, and Silicon Valley) combined to create a single college of art and design within Argosy University, known as The Art Institute of California—a college of Argosy University. Additionally, the Western State University College of Law in Fullerton became a college of Argosy University and will be known as Western State College of Law at Argosy University. The new colleges join the existing five colleges of Argosy University, which include the College of Business, College of Education, College of Health Sciences, College of Undergraduate Studies and College of Psychology and Behavioral Sciences.

As part of the transition, The Art Institute of California campuses relinquished their national accreditation and are now governed by the regional accreditation held by Argosy University. Argosy University is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Senior Colleges and Universities of the Western Association of Colleges and Schools.

The Art Institute of California will continue its relationship with The Art Institutes system and will now merge its enthusiasm for education in the creative and applied arts with the history, tradition and passion of Argosy University's undergraduate and graduate-level programs.

At The Art Institutes, learning isn't limited by the boundaries of the classroom. Our students are engaged in the communities in which they live and attend school. They volunteer their artistic and culinary talents to organizations large and small to help make their corner of the world a better place.

This is the common thread that runs through our schools: a commitment to service from the students and assurance by faculty and staff to graduate students who are lifelong learners and important contributors to their communities.

We gather some of those stories for our annual report to the community, The Common Thread. Within its pages are examples of the work that takes place every day at The Art Institutes locations and in the communities where our schools are located.

    I have been working at The Art Institutes (HQ) part-time (less than a year)


    Great deal of schedule flexibility and meaningful department teaching collaboration. Department management is very keen to growing the program and recruiting a quality teaching team.


    They need a better internal computer system for teaching management. Very difficult to manage and access. Wireless system is lacking.
