Join us for a Grad studies Event!



Graduate Studies at Moore is a unique community for people of all identities who work closely with professionally active faculty artists, educators and designers. Our programs recognize the critical value of professional exposure and require a field practicum, internship or international studio residency. Each program hosts an annual symposium featuring guest speakers of national and international significance, focusing on contemporary issues in art, education and design.

Every year, we welcome select students into each of the programs after careful review of the required application materials. All prospective graduate students are reviewed by the Graduate Review Committee after the application deadline and are automatically considered for fellowships based on academic merit and creative promise. A separate application is not required.


Applications are currently being accepted for 2018. For fellowship consideration, all materials must be received in the office on or before February 1, 2018. Start your online application today!


Candidates enrolled in Art Education will take online courses at certain points in their program. State authorizations for online courses vary by state; if you reside outside of Pennsylvania, please check here to see if your state of residence permits you to take online courses at Moore.


To request information, you can fill out our online form to receive customized information about the program of your choice.
