About Us

In FIT's School of Art and Design, you can choose from among 17 creative professions and learn from passionate artists and designers who are also working professionals.  We provide a practical, hands-on, real world based education that can help you put an idea on paper, a concept into a computer, or a design into production.  FIT can take you from the classroom to an internship, from a job to a career.
