Positioned on the Pacific Rim and bordering Mexico, the Roski School of Art and Design provides an active learning environment that reflects the peoples and cultures of Los Angeles and beyond. We believe that diversity, inclusion, and equity are indispensable to higher education, and play a particularly important role in shaping the learning experience of cultural producers. Art and design education provides both methodologies and platforms for the investigation of complex ideas, and that inquiry must be founded on inclusive and open discourse that embraces difference.  Roski’s Critical Studies faculty collaborate with colleagues and in our teaching and research and draw students from across USC. Within the school, Critical Studies faculty teach general education courses in the histories and theories of art, design, and visual culture; core courses in the undergraduate and graduate art and design programs; and specialized seminars in the MFA Art and MA Curatorial Practices and the Public Sphere programs.
