Selecting a college is one of the most important decisions you can make in your life and career. At Cogswell College, we believe in an education that directly correlates with the work you will be doing after graduating. Many of our students take advantage of Cogswell's project-based learning model because it focuses on the same tasks they will be doing at their future jobs in real-life animation, sound, or video game studios.

The spirit of creating the extraordinary is alive and well at Cogswell College. It is in our DNA. It has been this way since 1888 when Dr. Henry Cogswell opened the doors to Cogswell Polytechnical College in San Francisco. Dr. Cogswell believed that the best path to learning was through doing — an anthem we still salute.
The College has had six campuses during its history. The first building, occupied in 1888, was located in the Mission District in San Francisco, California. When the 1906 earthquake partially destroyed the campus, a new building was built across the street at 26th and Folsom Streets. It was occupied in 1917. In 1974, the College purchased and moved to a location at Stockton and California Streets and converted the interior to classrooms, laboratories, shops, and other facilities, including a 200-seat auditorium. The building's original exterior features were preserved. The building was named a San Francisco city landmark in 1984 and placed on Architecturally Significant Structures. In 1985 Cogswell College again relocated to Bubb St. in Cupertino - a city within Silicon Valley.
