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.


The mission of FIT's School of Art and Design is to educate the next generation of creative, socially responsible and globally relevant professionals able to succeed in the broad spectrum of art and design fields. The school challenges students to create new and valuable ideas through innovation, collaboration and experimentation.
