The Corcoran School inspires students to create art with the potential to shape and influence the arts community and the world. Students put knowledge into action through internships, research and service in Washington, D.C.'s many world class museums, art galleries, design studios and international cultural institutions. As part of the George Washington University's (GW) Columbian College of Arts and Sciences, Corcoran students can pursue all of their interests in a multifaceted approach to the arts.
Located in the heart of Washington, D.C., the Corcoran offers the extraordinary advantage of using the rich tapestry of architecture, culture and dynamic visual and performing arts scene to spark imaginations. As a result, graduates gain unprecedented access to critical networking and internship opportunities and are regularly exposed to the vast collection of national treasures. The Corcoran strives to prepare its graduates for rich multidimensional careers in the 21st century.
