It is among few schools with a degree available in Interaction Design. There are two campuses in Pasadena and both are recognized as notable in the architectural field.

Art Center is also known as a vocational school, which began awarding degrees in 1949 by preparing returning G.I.’s for working in commercial arts fields. In 2003, Art Center was the first design college to receive non-governmental organization (NGO) status from the United Nations for its commitment to social and humanitarian issues.
