College of Art, Media & Design

Since its founding almost 140 years ago as one of the first colleges of its kind, the University of the Arts has been a national leader in developing young artists and designers. Our College of Art, Media & Design (CAMD) equips students to pursue their artistic passions and prepares them to connect and collaborate with others who are just as passionate, talented and creative, from almost every conceivable art, design and performing arts discipline.

Taught by accomplished and experienced faculty members – award-winning artists and leaders in their fields who are dedicated mentors to their students – CAMD students and alumni take risks to make bold statements and invent innovative solutions to tough problems. Our graduates not only succeed as artists, but become engaged, intelligent, creative leaders who change the world around them in a myriad of ways.
