By | Ohio's Conservatories of Music | No Comments

The Cleveland Institute of Music (CIM), another of Ohio’s “All Steinway” conservatories is located in University Circle, the heart of culture and education near downtown Cleveland. The home of the Cleveland Orchestra, Severance Hall is located only blocks from campus. CIM is small and selective, admitting only 30% of applicants, but boasts an excellent reputation across the board. They are particularly well known for music performance in strings and woodwinds and over half of CIM’s faculty are past or current members of the world-class Cleveland Orchestra. Specializing in undergraduate education and recognized nationally as a top 20 (top 10 in some ratings) conservatory of music, CIM has a lot to offer.

Cleveland Institute of Art has been educating professional artists and designers since 1882. CIA is located in the heart of University Circle, Cleveland’s cultural center. University Circle is home to over 8,000 students from Case Western Reserve University, the Cleveland Institute of Music, and CIA. The area abounds with cultural opportunities including Cleveland Botanical Gardens, Cleveland Symphony Orchestra, and six museums including the world renowned Cleveland Museum of Art.

CIA is one of 40 Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD) in the U.S. and the 2nd largest of 3 in Ohio. A dedicated art school is different than majoring in art at a comprehensive university. At CIA, students are surrounded by artists and have the advantage of taking courses across disciplines as needed to support their work.

Nationally known for their programs in Industrial Design and Biomedical Art, CIA offers 15 majors including growing majors in Game Design, Illustration, and Animation. A close relationship with Case Western Reserve University opens courses, team projects, and co-curricular activities, across schools.
