This school of the arts offers a broad curriculum that includes music, theatre, and creative writing as well as photography, art, graphic design, and film.

Santa Fe University of Art an Design is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools and Higher Learning Commission.

Originally named St. Michael’s College, Santa Fe University of Art and Design was established in 1859, making it New Mexico’s oldest college. St. Michael’s was run from an adobe hut when it opened and did not receive a charter to provide higher education until 1874, when it became the College of the Christian Brothers of New Mexico. The institution was renamed the College of Santa Fe in 1966 and kept that name until August 30, 2010, when it became Santa Fe University of Art and Design. The institution experienced some financial insecurity, but in July 2009 the City of Santa Fe, Laureate Education, and the New Mexico State Governor’s Office resolved those concerns by entering into a partnership with the university.

Santa Fe University of Art and Design has a 60-acre campus with libraries, art galleries, performance venues, residence halls, as well as production studios for both music and design. The university is also home to the Anne and John Marion Center for Photographic Arts, Garson Studios, and the Visual Arts Center.
