Moore College of Art & Design continues a strong commitment to its founder Sarah Worthington Peter’s promise of “empowering women to achieve financial independence by providing a high-quality, career-focused education.”    Its 2012 BFA graduates are already enjoying successful careers.   93% are employed and 79% of those are with organizations in their fields of study, including Abercrombie & Fitch, Daroff Designs, Inc., Pennsylvania School for the Deaf, Princeton University Press, Triangle Home Fashions, Tyco and numerous others. 

 In addition, alumni from this Class are representative of Moore’s community of ambitious graduates who are adept at maintaining active freelance practices in art and design while pursuing full-time work in many fields. Developing multiple streams of revenue is a mantra students are exposed to early, as preparing for their professional careers is an on-going goal they work on from their first through senior years.

Marah Carpenter, (Fashion Design) is learning the trade of bespoke and high-end leather footwear at Rossi Shoes while simultaneously working in Philadelphia’s creative economy painting murals and designing costumes for independent films.
