Plan Your Visit Who We Are Overview

Small college, big reach

When you meet our faculty and students, it becomes abundantly clear that they value not only the process of art and design, but its extraordinary value in the world.

Even more, PCA&D’s value extends beyond campus. You’ll enjoy living and learning in Lancaster, PA — a small, historical city that cherishes artists and pulsates with creativity. As you pursue your degree, you’ll be embraced by the diverse neighbors, businesses, and galleries that populate our city’s energetic downtown corridor.


When you graduate with the BFA, you’ll have developed an extensive network of fellow alumni and professional contacts to tap into. And you will continue to live a life in art as you go on to become a respected contributor in your creative industry.
