    Continuing a Tradition of Excellence – Our History
    The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania traces its history back to 1952, when the York Academy of Arts was
    established in the city by local artists to meet the community’s needs for training in the visual arts. Thirty years later
    the school became part of the Antonelli Institute of Art & Photography group headquartered in Philadelphia. In 1988,
    the school became Bradley Academy for the Visual Arts and once again became an independent school continuing
    to provide area employers with well-trained graduates. In 1997, the school moved to its current location, a newly-
    constructed, contemporary 38,000 – square foot building in east York. In 2003, the school was acquired by The Art
    Institutes International, Inc, a leader in creative education in the United States. In support of that acquisition, the school
    changed its name to The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania in 2007.


    The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania facilities, which includes an additional 7,500 square feet of administrative and

    Macintosh and Windows computers. All labs are equipped with large (11x17) or small format color scanners and
    access to over one terabyte of network storage. The computer labs are supported by Epson Stylus 7880 color printers,
    multiple HP LaserJet 5000 series printers, and an HP DesignJet color plotter.

     Graphic Design
     (104 quarter credit hours, 77 weeks, 1408 clock hours)
     Associate of Science Degree (AS)


     The mission of the Associate of Science program in Graphic Design is to provide a focus on
     conceptual thinking while developing graphic design technical and creative skills, including an
     introduction to the theory and practice of print and web design production, electronic publishing,
     graphic imagery, and sales promotion. Graduates are prepared to grow their careers from entry-level
     positions in the graphic design field through practice of lifelong learning. Graphic Design graduates
     are prepared to pursue entry-level employment and to meet the challenges of the continually changing
     marketplace and Graphic Design profession.

     Glossy magazines, digital media, corporate stationery, television graphics, and billboards - all are
     composed of images, design, and printed words that work together to sell products and services, or
     to convey messages. This is the fundamental concept of graphic design, and it’s the basis of some of
     today’s most dynamic fields - advertising, publishing, television and interactive communications.

     The Graphic Design program at The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania is the first step toward
     a career in commercial graphics. Initially, students can develop an understanding of color and
     composition, design and typography, and learn accurate drawing skills. As they progress through the
     program, students are trained in creative problem solving and have the opportunity to learn to offer
     solutions that are effective in the business world.

     Emphasis is placed on concept development and creative problem solving. Skills and techniques
     of computer graphics and electronic imaging are taught by industry professionals. Tools include
     scanners, digital cameras, and computer-based hardware and software. Advanced training includes
     the execution of assignments encountered by professionals in the field.

     By graduation, Graphic Design students in the associate’s degree program have acquired the training
     and the portfolio necessary to be prepared to seek entry-level positions as print buyers, gallery
     assistants, sign makers, photo retouchers, set designers, and production artists.


     Each class listed is a 3 credit, 4 clock hours per week course (General Education courses are 4
     credits). Each quarter is 11 weeks. Three quarters or 33 weeks is defined as an academic year, during
     which a full time student would earn 48 quarter credits. Graphic Design students graduate with a total
     of 104 quarter credit hours. Graduates earn an Associate of Science Degree.

Bachelor of Science Degree (BS)


The mission of the Bachelor of Science program in Graphic Design is to provide a focus on conceptual thinking
while developing graphic design technical and creative skills, including an introduction to the theory and practice
of print and web design production, electronic publishing, graphic imagery, and sales promotion. Graduates are
prepared to grow their careers from entry-level positions in the graphic design field through practice of lifelong
learning. Graphic Design graduates are prepared to pursue entry-level positions and to meet the challenges of the
continually changing marketplace and Graphic Design profession.

Glossy magazines, digital media, corporate stationery, television graphics, and billboards - all are composed of
images, design, and printed words that work together to sell products and services, or to convey messages. This is
the fundamental concept of graphic design, and it’s the basis of some of today’s most dynamic fields - advertising,
publishing, television, and interactive communications.

The Graphic Design program at The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania is the first step toward a career in
commercial graphics. Initially, students can develop an understanding of color and composition, design and
typography, and learn accurate drawing skills. As they progress through the program, students are trained in
creative problem solving and have the opportunity to learn to offer solutions that are effective in the business world.

Emphasis is placed on concept development and creative problem solving. Skills and techniques of computer
graphics and electronic imaging are taught by master professionals. Tools include scanners, digital cameras, and
computer-based hardware and software. Advanced training includes the execution of assignments encountered by
professionals in the field.

Bachelor’s degree graduates are prepared to pursue entry-level opportunities in advertising agencies, design
studios, publishing houses, corporate communications departments, and television studios. They might be a
graphic designer, web designer, junior art director, production coordinator, or computer artist. Some will establish
design firms and take on challenging freelance assignments.


Each class listed is a 3 credit, 4 clock hours per week course (General Education courses are 4 credits). Each
quarter is 11 weeks. Three quarters or 33 weeks is defined as an academic year, during which a full time student
would earn 48 quarter credits. Graphic Design students graduate with a total of 180 quarter credit hours. Graduates
earn a Bachelor of Science Degree.

     Interior Design
     (180 quarter credit hours, 132 weeks, 2475 clock hours)
     Bachelor of Science Degree (BS)


     The mission of the Bachelor of Science program in Interior Design, is to prepare students to pursue entry level
     positions in their field and function as trained professionals able to conceive and develop viable, creative design
     solutions within the interior environment. Students are prepared for the purpose of improving the quality of life,
     increasing productivity and protecting the health, safety, and welfare of the public. By meeting the educational
     goals, students should develop an attitude of flexibility and a desire for life-long learning necessary to meet the
     changing demands of the interior design profession.

     Creative individuals who design interiors create the spaces in which we spend most of our lives. We live, work, and
     play in environments designed by professionals who have a unique blend of artistic talent and practical experience.

     Interior designers must have a thorough understanding of efficient space planning, human factors, color, pattern,
     lighting, furniture, and materials. These elements are essential to the creation of residential and commercial spaces.
     Whether working for architectural or interior design firms, hotel or restaurant chains, department or furniture stores,
     or independently as consultants or firm owners, accomplished designers are adept at working with clients and
     understanding their needs.

     Students will have the opportunity to learn to develop conceptual ideas into functional designs by acquiring a
     foundation of creative and technical knowledge that will be applied to studio projects as they advance throughout
     the curriculum. Students receive training on how to generate construction documents, material specifications and
     work with a variety of building and life safety codes.

     Students at The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania are introduced to a world where color, texture, fabric, and
     light are instruments that paint an interior environment they can manipulate. Students are introduced to computer-
     aided drafting (CAD) and explore the world of interior design in the studio, the showroom, and the industry through
     a hands-on required internship opportunity. By graduation, students have learned to control space and affect
     perceptions through the application of their designs: the way color elicits response; the effect of ambient and task
     lighting on efficiency; the ability of a well designed space to control mood and support function.

     We place great emphasis on the development of a working professional portfolio for every Interior Design student.
     Our faculty works with the students throughout the program to ensure that their projects are portfolio-ready by
     the time they reach graduation. Each student’s portfolio demonstrates a well-rounded set of design skills that is
     applicable in both the residential and commercial sides of the industry.

     The Interior Design program at The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania has been developed to educate a new
     generation of interior designers and prepare them for the challenges ahead. Graduates are prepared to seek entry
     level positions as interior designers, space planners, corporate designers, facilities planners, dealership designers,
     and residential designers. Students can pursue employment with architectural & design firms, interior design firms,
     home builders and planning departments of corporations, healthcare and education facilities.


     Each class listed is a 3 credit, 4 clock hours per week course (General Education courses are 4 credits).
     Each quarter is 11 weeks. Three quarters or 33 weeks is defined as an academic year, during which a full time
     student would earn 48 quarter credits. Interior Design students graduate with a total of 180 quarter credit hours.
     Graduates earn a Bachelor of Science Degree.

     Kitchen & Bath Design
     (115 quarter credit hours, 77 weeks, 1595 clock hours)
     Associate of Science Degree (AS)


     The mission of the Associate of Science program in Kitchen & Bath Design, is to prepare students to become
     specialized kitchen and bath professionals within the interior design market. Students will have NKBA
     (National Kitchen & Bath Association) supported courses focusing on the design and planning, construction
     and systems, and the management and technical skills of kitchen and baths. Upon successful completion
     of the program students will be prepared to sit for the first phase of the NKBA certification exams.*

     *The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania does not guarantee third-party certification/licensure.
     Outside agencies control the requirements for taking and passing certification/licensing exams and
     are subject to change without notice to The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania. The Kitchen &
     Bath program at The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania was created in response to demand for
     specialized design professionals equipped to work with educated, design savvy homeowners.

     Within the field of residential interiors lies the highly specialized area of Kitchen & Bath Design.
     Kitchen & bath designers understand the importance of design and style as well as the
     functionality and practicality of a living space. Kitchen & bath designers easily envision how
     one space can have many uses such as a kitchen space that can be used as both a cooking
     area and gathering spot or a bathroom that can also function as luxurious dressing area.

     Kitchens and baths are the most utilized rooms in any home and need to serve a variety of functions for most
     families. Professionals in this field can transform the ordinary into the spectacular. The specialized focus on
     kitchens and baths specifically allow the design professional who practices in this area of the interior design
     industry to concentrate on highly functional and customizable design solutions that are driven by client need.

     Students enrolled in the Associate of Science program for Kitchen & Bath Design, are exposed to both creative
     and technical courses that provide the necessary foundation to complete their studio work. Studio courses are
     designed to provide students with real-to-life project scenarios that advance in skill level and complexity as the
     curriculum progresses. Students can learn to utilize industry-specific CAD software in order to plan kitchen and
     bath spaces in a residential setting. In addition, students have the opportunity to utilize a working knowledge
     of lighting, materials, building systems and codes along with products and appliances for their projects.
     Business fundamentals specific to the kitchen and bath trade such as budgets, cost estimates, project
     bidding, and an overview of marketing are incorporated into the curriculum at a variety of levels. Students gain
     hands-on industry experience working with Kitchen & Bath Designers through two required internship courses.

     We place great emphasis on the development of a working portfolio for every Kitchen & Bath Design student.
     Our faculty works with the students throughout the program to ensure that their projects are portfolio-
     ready by the time they reach graduation. Each student’s portfolio demonstrates a highly focused set of
     design skills that are applicable to the residential kitchen and bath facet of the interior design industry.

     The Kitchen & Bath Design program at The Art Institute of York — Pennsylvania has been
     developed to educate a highly specialized generation of interior designer and prepare them for
     the challenges ahead. Graduates are prepared to seek entry level positions as a kitchen/bath
     designer, kitchen planner, assistant project manager/installation coordinator, draftsperson, kitchen
     and bath retail sales consultant, installation coordinator and manufacturer’s representative.


     Each class listed is a 3 credit, 4 clock hours per week course (General Education courses are 4
     credits). Each quarter is 11 weeks. Three quarters or 33 weeks is defined as an academic year, during
     which a full time student would earn 48 quarter credits. Kitchen & Bath Design students graduate
     with a total of 115 quarter credit hours. Graduates earn an Associate of Science Degree.

Web Design & Interactive Media
(180 quarter credit hours, 132 weeks, 2420 clock hours)
Bachelor of Science Degree (BS)


The mission of the Bachelor of Science program in Web Design & Interactive Media, is to prepare students to
work effectively both individually and in a team creating aesthetically compelling and effective content to be
presented and interacted with on the Web and multiple interactive media platforms.

The Web Design & Interactive Media program prepares students to pursue entry-level careers designing and
developing web sites and interactive/multimedia software products. Design for the World Wide Web and
interactive media is a dynamic and rapidly evolving multi-billion dollar industry that includes products running
not only on conventional computers, but also on devices such as interactive kiosks and portable devices. Web
Design & Interactive Media is an essential part of businesses worldwide, as well as the education, scientific and
entertainment industries.

Students begin the program by developing their skills in drawing and design, while learning the fundamentals of
digital imaging, audio and basic Web technologies. Intermediate courses introduce interactive media authoring,
video technology and project management skills. Students have the opportunity to continue to develop their web
skills, learning programming and scripting techniques such as Actionscript, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP, and
XML for design, animation and data handling. In advanced courses, students have the opportunity to expand their
understanding of the structure and technologies of web and interactive media products, and learn techniques for
designing and managing large projects.

In the senior project of the Bachelor of Science program, students have the opportunity to plan, design and
develop substantial projects, often for real clients. Students can also produce professional-quality digital
portfolios as interactive media presentations of their own work and abilities.

Students who complete the Bachelor of Science program have by graduation completed advanced coursework
and have developed and managed larger and more complex projects. Many students also gain professional
experience through internships, freelance work and/or real-life projects pursued through coursework, and are
prepared to enter the workforce at a higher level. Graduates of the Web Design & Interactive Media program
pursue entry-level positions as digital media producers, webmasters or creative directors, and project
coordinators in fields such as law, medicine, education, corporate communications, film, and advertising, or might
even start their own companies.

Faculty members are experienced professionals and educators who bring their knowledge of the field and

     GENERAL EDUCATION CURRICULUM


     The mission of the General Education curriculum is to support and continue the building of the skills, knowledge,
     and critical thinking that students need for professional and personal success. It offers a firm foundation of
     knowledge and refinement of those skills in reading, writing, listening and speaking, math and science, the social
     sciences, and the arts and humanities. General Education broadens and deepens students’ understanding of
     themselves, and enables students to draw upon their knowledge as a whole, to foster intelligent inquiry, abstract
     and logical thinking, critical analysis, and an integration and synthesis of that knowledge. To be successful in the
     future workplace, students will need the essential core that is General Education, a core that will promote both
     intellectual and personal growth, and furnish the coping strategies that will be needed in an ever-changing world.

     General Education is an integral component of every academic program at The Art Institute of York —
     Pennsylvania. Students in all disciplines take general education courses, where they are presented with a broad
     knowledge base that fosters the skills, creativity, and independent thinking, as well as the competencies and
     perspectives necessary for productive personal and professional lives. The general education faculty members
     are teachers who care, have passion, and support the students’ development by advancing the following learning
     goals:

     Reasoning: To understand forms of logic or ways of thinking.
     Problem Solving: To use reason in a specific context in order to answer a specific question. Problem-solving
     might involve one or more of the following: Defining terms and tasks, organizing and verifying solutions,
     explaining, or justifying.
     Communication: To construct and exchange messages through both verbal and non-verbal symbolic systems,
     such as reading, writing, listening, speaking, and gesture.
     Connections: To identify or recognize relationships within and across disciplines; specific forms of thought.
     Representation: To formulate a message through the use of alternative mediums to express present facts,
     thoughts, ideas, concepts, arguments, values, perspectives, or opinions.

     GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS
     Students must meet all prerequisites for General Education courses.
     Associate’s degree seeking students: One General Education elective course must be at the 200 level or higher.
     Bachelor’s degree seeking students: One General Education elective course must be taken from each area:

     opportunity to sit down with a writing instructor for some one-on-one help with any writing assignment a student
     might have.
     Related Course Content: General education courses apply course content to design, and the interests of the
     design student. Students learn to relate course materials to their lives as well as the professional arena.
