The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD)


The Rhode Island School of Design, or, as it’s colloquially known, RISD, is a university dedicated to the fine arts and design. RISD has been ranked among the best art and design universities in the US.


“Rhode Island School of Design is a private, nonprofit college founded in Providence, RI in 1877—making it one of the first art and design schools in the US. Approximately 2,480 students from around the world are engaged in liberal arts studies and rigorous, studio-based learning at RISD (pronounced “RIZ-dee”), where they choose from 19 studio majors and earn bachelor’s or master’s degrees in the fine arts, architecture, design or art education. Each year more than 5,800 children and adults also access our specialized studio facilities through RISD|CE courses.” (http://www.risd.edu/about/)
