Overview

Experience how the arts thrive at Stanford! Participants come together for a three-week intensive arts program offering academically challenging, interdisciplinary courses in architecture, art, film, and music. 

Unlock your creativity at Stanford. Stanford is well-known as a destination for math and science—but Stanford is also a hub of innovation in the arts, with a rich tradition of excellence in music, architecture, writing, and design.

Stanford Summer Arts Institute offers six courses that emphasize the essential connections between the arts and other areas of study. Through lectures, guest workshops, and hands-on projects, participants dive deep into an advanced course topic exploring the urban environment, design thinking, user psychology, and more. Students do not need an arts background to participate.
