Moore graduates break ground, shape new fields and blaze trails.
Moore graduates make up nearly 200 years of groundbreaking creatives, from the first woman to design a postage stamp to Project Runway winners, Emmy Award–winning costume designers, and Pulitzer Prize–winning photographers. They are shaping new fields like gaming, animation and special-needs art education. They are entrepreneurs with successful independent design studios and creative companies. The world needs Moore alumni.
We make space and open opportunity for the kind of inclusive talent and new vision that employers want and successful creative entrepreneurs need. This is why 97% of Moore 2021 graduates are in employed or in graduate school one year after graduation, with 95% working in their field of study.
"At Moore, I was just an art student, evaluated for the work I was producing, and not for my gender or orientation. It wasn’t until I got to graduate school that I realized men who made art were often taken more seriously for doing so. Moore gave me a glimpse of a world where there were no societal barriers. It gave me the confidence to navigate the world and my work without reservation, even in my gendered body."
