Welcome to Moore College of Art & Design, a diverse and inclusive community serving women, nonbinary and gender-nonconforming art and design students. With more than 175 years of art and design education expertise, Moore’s unparalleled reputation is thanks to our rich history, exceptional and dedicated faculty of practicing artists and designers, a vibrant community of talented students, and intentionally small class sizes.  

Moore is financially healthy, thanks to an endowment per student that is ranked among the top 18% in the country, an annual budget surplus for the past 23 years and continuous investment in our campus and facilities. At Moore, your art and design education and college experience will be personalized and focused on you, and you will find yourself right at home.
