Located just north of LAX, Otis is an amazing place for visual arts students to further their education. Otis offers both Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and Masters of Fine Arts (MFA) degrees in a number of fields, including Architecture/Landscape/Interiors, Digital Media, Fashion Design, Toy Design, Product Design, Communication Arts and Fine Arts. Students in all disciplines are required to take core courses in the liberal arts, ensuring that Otis provides a well-rounded education.
Otis is a compact campus housed in mid-century architecture. The main building, an unassuming six-story concrete building, provides communal art space as well as classroom space. Students spend class time as well as their free time in these common spaces, working and learning together. Students learn how to accept and give constructive criticism, an important part of today’s collaborative arts education.
Otis students are sought-after interns in the many creative Los Angeles industries, and students and alumni alike are assisted with their job searches through the Office of Career Services.
