Located in downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania and founded in 1982, Pennsylvania College of Art & Design is a private, professional art college offering BFA degrees in digital media, fine art, graphic design, illustration, and photography. Because visual, verbal, and virtual communication is increasingly valued in a global society, our curriculum emphasizes the relationships among thinking, making, and communicating. A small college with a big reach, we transform our students by challenging them to cultivate expansive points-of-view and create sophisticated visual output. The ability to continue to learn and create extends beyond the college experience. PCA&D is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE), is approved as a college and for degree-granting privileges by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, and is a member of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art & Design (AICAD).

Pennsylvania College of Art & Design Reviews
The president and Dean of Students put on this front like they are all about the students, but when students bring issues to their attention, nothing gets done. The building hours right now are insane. No other art school has our hours. For two years they talked about this "exciting sculpture" for the green space the school owns across the street, just to reveal a big orange and blue sign made of steel that looks awful, doesn't make sense, and that all of the students and faculty hate. They spent a couple million on that instead of using that money for something useful for the students. They are just totally oblivious to what healthy collaboration means. The school is rapidly turning into a trade school instead of a fine art school the way it was founded. They just revealed a new digital media major, which has infinite possibilities in the fine art world, but their entire gallery show to introduce the major was all commercial (app design, game design, digital illustration, cartoon animation) etc. New administration!
