In the spring of 1928, a generation of educators, Mr. Cai Yuanpei and Lin Fengmian and other pioneers, jointly established the National Academy of Art, the predecessor of the China Academy of Art, opening a great chapter in modern Chinese higher art education.

 

As a renowned university for higher education in art over 100 years, China Academy of Art is one of the top art schools in the world. It was selected as one of the first “Double First-class” universities by Chinese government in 2017. In the fourth round of China Discipline Ranking, Fine Arts and Design majors were awarded A+, while Art Theory, Drama and Film Studies were awarded A- and B+.

 

Since the first batch of national top-major evaluations, nearly 80% of the majors in CAA have been selected into the construction sites of national first-class majors, ranking first in the art colleges and universities in the country.

 

Based on a global perspective, China Academy of Art is actively planning the iterative upgrading of disciplines, hoping to explore the ultimate value and development of art together with fellows and friends. Now we are looking for high-level talents from all over the world, inviting knowledgeable, ambitious and promising people to join in our schools.
