May I add to this? What about post-graduate work in typography? Aside from Reading, any comments?

What’s about France?
And The Netherlands?

Don’t they have good academies?

CalArts does not teach type design — maybe you could call it lettering. Maybe.

Hi Ramiro,

If you have the resources and opportunity, definitely check out the Koninklijke Academie van Beeldende Kunstern (Royal Academy of Visual[or Fine?] Arts) in the Hague, the Netherlands. The URL is

http://www.kabk.nl/

This is the #1 place I wish I had the time, resources and qualifications to study at. Reading and Leipzig are tied for second, though if I found a place in Austria or Switzerland, they might take over second.

Otherwise, I don’t think there are any accredited full-time type design programs inside the U.S., but I would be truly delighted to be proven wrong.
