We invite you to join us.

DCAD was originally founded through a creative partnership between Pratt Institute and the Corcoran College of Art and Design, and now stands independently as an unique AFA Degree program for aspiring artists and designers.  Our program is rigorous, intense and structured. Students are all taught by practicing, professional artists and designers. DCAD students receive one to one support and attention from the heads of the departments, called Area Coordinators.
