Moore's intentionally small size is a HUGE asset to our students.

We boast a 7:1 student to faculty ratio, which means tons of personalized attention in the classroom. All Moore faculty members possess an incredible combination of technical skill and real-world expertise. In the past year alone, Moore faculty have had work featured on television shows, won book awards, ventured on art-fueled road trips, designed clothes for celebrities…the list goes on. 

Moore faculty will encourage you to strive for excellence while prioritizing creative exploration and self-expression. They’ll be your coaches AND your proud fans as you grow your potential and succeed in achieving your goals. 

Our staff are also here to provide you with an individualized experience. You'll get to know everyone from Student Affairs staff to the friendly folks at Sage Dining who make our delicious meals. They might even memorize your order at the Moore Café.

I love the education I am receiving here. Students are encouraged by their instructors to develop their skills, as well as their style, and advocate for social change through art and design. Besides the extraordinary community at Moore, I am also surrounded by amazing artists who inspire me and make me want to work harder.

One of the things that makes Moore so special is its ability to be so progressive, and a safe place for young creatives, for women and nonbinary and trans individuals, giving them opportunities to be in fields where they are underrepresented. Moore is also constantly evaluating the creative fields, opening up new avenues for students. I really don't know of any other place like that.

I didn’t feel welcomed in a lot of spaces in my high school. Then, coming here, I loved Moore so much that I wanted to be involved. I've grown so much as a leader, and it’s helped me take on more responsibility, learn how to balance and tackle things. I am a completely different person than I was when I walked in here four years ago.

We promise we’re not trying to be cheesy.

Our tagline is "The World Needs Moore," and we say this to underscore the value of our programs and the potential of our graduates. We produce artists, designers, leaders and entrepreneurs that the market not only wants, but desperately needs.

In creative industries that have historically left out underrepresented voices and viewpoints, Moore students and alumni have the opportunity and skills to push those industries forward. That’s what it’s all about—and if that excites you, inspires you and motivates you, then you belong at Moore. It’s as simple as that.

Your voice is powerful. Your voice is needed. The world needs Moore because the world needs you.

I loved being at Moore from the moment I visited. I knew it was the exact environment I wanted for my college education. It’s very open and nonjudgmental and good for expressing creativity and individuality. I’ve been able to grow my skill set so much, and the professors here are so great. They’ve taught me how to manage my time and how to express myself while engaging in challenging work. I am so glad I made the decision to come to Moore.
