MassArt, America's pioneering independent public College of Art and Design, opened in the year 1873. The institution's first goal was to produce drawing teachers needed in the schools. Eventually, it aimed at training professional designers, artists, and even architects. Students with high school diploma can enroll in this school and enhance and practice their skills in visual and media arts. The college offers 21 disciplines under Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees. Certificates on graphic, industrial design, and even fashion are also available. Graduate programs are also offered at MassArt.

The college boasts of its state-of-the-art facilities especially its 1,000,000 square feet studio, exhibition space, and classroom. As an art school, the facilities are made certain to be conducive for creative people. Inside the campus are featured exhibitions. These exhibitions display masterpieces that are not usually seen in New England while balancing media types varying from painting to performing arts. In the past, exhibitions like Business As Usual, a video from China, and William Christenberry Photography were featured.

Children from public schools can also have a glimpse of the college through its education program. In this program, children are brought to the exhibitions which allows them to nurture their visual thinking through activities that are inquiry-based. For casual visitors of the campus, galleries are all over the campus. At the South Hall, the Bakalar, Paine, Arnheim, and Brant galleries can be viewed. At the Artist's Residence, the Doran Gallery can be viewed. More artistic masterpieces can be viewed just around the campus.

Professional and continuing education are part of the college's system. A variety of offerings in sculpture, film, painting, drawing, video, fashion, architecture, animation, graphic or industrial design, jewelry, art history, and liberal arts among many others can be taken up by any student who wishes to have a more creative vision and technical skills.
