Typographic Education

I’m an undergrad student at a school which I greatly enjoy. However, I was wondering what some people thought were some of the better school’s typographically. There’s obvious ones like CalArts, Cranbrook and Yale, but I was wondering if anyone had other schools in mind. I won’t mention the school I attend, just so it doesn’t seem bias in some way. I’m planning on going to grad school in a few years and I really want a school with a strong typography program. I’m really interested to see what people think of the educators out there.

The only one that’s impressed me
is the one at Reading, in the UK.

BTW, I wrote an informal review of a recent
type design exhibit at CalArts about their
program — it’s on Lines & Splines:


There’s a nice rebuttal by Lee Schulz as well.

Im curious… have you any samples of your typographic explorations? I’d love to see some..
I mean if youre “planning” to go to grad school in a FEW years time…then you will have lots of time to sort out what kinda knowledge youre seeking. A school that springs to mind is a french one that I can’t remember the name of…So unless youre an american that wanna stay in america i would look towards Europe. I belive Royal College of Art (London) has a good typography-course. Anyway, good luck with your quest…and I admire your dedication to typography as it seems from your plans.
