About Rhode Island School of Design

Founded in 1877, Rhode Island School of Design stands out among the world’s preeminent colleges of art and design. It is a private, nonprofit college founded in Providence, Rhode Island. Approximately 2,480 students from around the world are engaged in liberal arts studies and rigorous, studio-based learning, where they choose from 19 studio majors and earn bachelor’s or master’s degrees in the fine arts, architecture, design or art education.

Its community of critical thinkers share a belief in the value of hands-on learning, experimentation and an ever-evolving approach to an immersive, discipline-based studio education reinforced by studies in the liberal arts. The school’s studio environment fosters curiosity, flexibility, empathy, imagination and expansive thinking. Passionate about their work, students devote a lot of time to pushing the limits of their own expectations and inspiring each other in the studio. RISD’s culture of critique is based on constructive and mutually supportive conversations, with students, faculty and staff interacting with openness, good faith and respect for individual differences.

Learning through making requires intense focus and a high level of creative energy, making it extra important to balance studio work with a variety of ways of getting recharged physically, emotionally and psychologically. RISD offers a wide range of helpful outlets, from fitness classes to meditation sessions to comprehensive health and wellness services to its students.

Rhode Island School of Design has more than 25,000 alumni living and working around the world. With more than 150,000 circulating books, RISD’s library offers a wide range of specialized resources in art, design, architecture and more in a beautifully redesigned historic grand banking hall.
