Founded by Walt Disney in 1961, ‘CalArts’ – as it is fondly known by staff and students – has acquired the nickname ‘the Harvard Business School of Animation’.

It was the first US educational institution to grant degrees in both the visual and performing arts. Today, it offers an even wider selection of programmes within its schools of art, critical studies, dance, film, music and theatre.

With cross-pollination between different fields as its defining philosophy, its impressive roster of graduates includes some of the biggest names in animation. One notable example is Rob Minkoff, director of The Lion King and Stuart Little.
