At the Open House, prospective students and their families can explore the campus, connect with current students as well as alumni, meet faculty, tour the facilities and receive feedback on their portfolios.

Moore’s ten BFA majors, ranging from Fashion Design to Fine Arts and Curatorial Studies to Interactive & Motion Arts are designed to cultivate each woman’s creative talents, and provide the technical and professional skills essential to building a successful career in the visual arts. Students learn from award-winning, professionally active faculty who bring real-world knowledge and expertise into the classroom and encourage excellence, creative exploration and self-expression to prepare students for lifelong learning and leadership in their chosen field. Moore also offers its students an array of minors that complement their course of study and allow them to advance their interests in support of their artistic and professional goals.

Moore’s Graduate Studies coeducational community consists of unique programs in Art & Social Engagement (launching 2015), Community Practice (launching 2015), Studio Art, Interior Design and Art Education with an Emphasis in Special Populations that prepare motivated men and women with the skills, knowledge and resources to become professional artists, designers and teachers. Made up of select students, faculty and staff, we test, perfect, invent and forever alter art practices and policies on a local and global scale. The programs’ summer intensive, evening and weekend year-round scheduling are well suited for working adults seeking to acquire new skills and perspectives.
