DAAP Graduate Programs

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.

Explore the DAAP website to learn more about our graduate programs. Information about the admissions process for an individual program can be found by following the link for each graduate program.

You can also contact the individual program directors and department heads to request more information about the programs.
