BFA PROGRAMS

Moore's BFA programs are designed to cultivate each student'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.

 

GRADUATE STUDIES

Distinctive in its integrated, intimate approach to advancing today’s visual art landscape and the field of art and design itself, Graduate Studies at Moore seeks to connect and educate artists of all walks of life united by their creative purpose.

Moore’s Graduate Studies community consists of unique programs in Socially-Engaged Art, Socially-Engaged Studio Art and Art Education with an Emphasis in Special Populations that prepare motivated people of all identities 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.

Candidates have the opportunity to work closely with professionally active faculty artists, educators and designers, and will work independently with professionals in the field. Each program hosts an annual symposium featuring guest speakers of national and international significance, focusing on contemporary issues in art, education and design.

The three programs’ summer intensive, evening and weekend year-round scheduling are well suited for working adults seeking to acquire new skills and perspectives in their current studio, design or teaching practices.

The Post-Baccalaureate program in Art Education is designed for individuals who have an undergraduate degree. The program offers opportunities to launch an exciting new career as an art teacher. Course requirements include proven teaching and learning practices in contemporary Art Education. Admission is based on college transcripts and portfolio review.
