Graduate Admissions

Thank you for your interest in the University of Cincinnati (UC) and the College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP).

As one of the most comprehensive schools of art and design in the United States, DAAP is a dynamic and exciting environment in which to study. Students work closely with engaged faculty members and collaborate with professionals and other students involved in a variety of disciplines. The cooperative education (co-op) program, required in many of our disciplines, offers students paid, professional-level, real-world experience that supplements a rigorous educational curriculum.
