Top Master of Art Programs in the Paris in France. This one-year program, focused on new materials and technologies, equips designers with the knowledge and skills required to make the most of emerging new technologies and materials.

The goal of the program is to encourage and enable designers to incorporate them into their design, whether it be men’s, women’s or children’s wear.

There is an expectation that students will explore a convergence rather than opposition of the two. At PCA Students may choose either the 1-year MA Degree Track or the 2-year MFA (Terminal) Degree Track. The first year is common to both degree tracks with the exception of a spring semester Degree Project for MA candidates. MA students who choose to continue into the MFA would be required to complete the 3rd and 4th semesters and the MFA Thesis Project.
