Moore College of Art and Design Profile
Established in 1848, Moore College of Art & Design is the first and only U.S. women’s art and design college - and one of two in the world. Moore's campus, on the scenic Benjamin Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia within walking distance of three world-renown art museums, was designed and built explicitly to accommodate art and design students.
Moore students receive intensive, personalized instruction in small classes from creative professionals who will inspire and support you to achieve your goals, passions and dreams. The College offers 9 BFA programs, including Art Education, Art History, Curatorial Studies, Fashion Design, Fine Arts with emphases in 2D and 3D, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Design, and Photography & Digital Arts.
A required, subsidized 240-hour internship plants the early seeds for career-focused education. 99% of students receive some financial aid as they prepare for inspiring, successful careers. Attesting to high job-placement rates, Moore’s student loan default rate (4%) is well below the national average (13.4%).
