Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design at the University of Michigan

The University of Michigan School of Art & Design (A&D), located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, offers graduate and undergraduate degrees in art and design. Established as an independent unit in 1974, A&D is one of 19 schools and colleges at the University of Michigan. A&D is fully accredited by the National Association of School’s of Art & Design (NASAD).

Academic programs

The Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design’s academic programs and projects focus on generating new creative work, integrating the cultures of art and design, and engaging with the University, region, and national and international communities.


The Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design offers four undergraduate programs: a BFA in Art & Design, a BA in Art & Design, Dual Admission / Double Degree Programs with eight other university schools and colleges, and the Interarts Performance BFA, jointly offered with the School of Music, Theater and Dance. A&D also offers a Minor in Art and Design.

Beginning in Fall 2010, all undergraduate students will be required to engage in a substantive international experience. Local and regional engagement is also a priority, and BFA candidates are required to complete at least one “engagement studio” working directly with individuals or groups in Southeastern Michigan.

The Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design offers three graduate level degrees: a three-year MFA in Art & Design, a PhD in Design Science offered cooperatively by the School of Art & Design, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the Ross School of Business, and the Department of Psychology, and a MFA in Art & Design / MBA in Business Dual Degree Program.
