TEN undergraduate majors. SIX graduate programs. Endless possibilities.
We do things differently here. We ask big questions. Like what can art and design do in the world if we push ourselves to reimagine everything. We experiment. We challenge one another to break things apart and reconstitute them in new ways.
Every department is interdisciplinary. Every door is open to you. We are 100% focused on art and design.
The programs of the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies at PNCA celebrate and support the development of experimental, interdisciplinary, and collaborative creative practices through meaningful faculty-student relationships, engaging seminars, and mentor-guided studio practice.
Liberal Arts courses round out your education, helping you become a more thoughtful, well-rounded artist or designer. Specifically designed for artists and designers, our Liberal Arts courses open the world wide with introductions to multiple perspectives, worldviews, and experiences.
Special Programs offer a range of expanded learning opportunities for students and the community. These include projects, workshops, and intensives in applied art and design in the realms of environmental science, technology, science and tech pedagogy, and industrial design. Programs also include a variety of international studies opportunities, an artist residency, and a professional print publishing studio.
