The design and arts programs at Drexel develop creative strategists — students who have the ambition and passion to bring big ideas to life. With a degree from Drexel, students are prepared, not just to succeed in an ever-changing and aggressively competitive market, but to change with it and thrive. We ensure our students learn from a faculty made up of professionals at the top of their fields, experts who can mentor our students in and outside of the classroom and studio.

Many of our design and arts degrees, a number of which are nationally ranked, are housed in the Westphal College of Media Arts & Design. Courses are predominately studio-based, which allows for hands-on learning. Our facilities include multiple recording studios, a hybrid making lab, a motion capture/green screen compositing space, pre/post-production editing labs, architecture and interior design studios, performing arts facilities, photography facilities, and more.

If you want to gain the diverse skills necessary to manage your creative, professional future, Drexel design and arts programs may be right for you.
