The New Hampshire Institute
of Art was established as the Manchester Institute of Arts and Sciences
in 1898. From the Institute’s outset, it has had a firm commitment to
educating diverse traditional and nontraditional students in the fine
arts. As the only independent college of art in the state accredited by
the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), the
Institute offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, Certificate Programs,
and a strong Continuing Education program. A dedicated faculty promotes
intellectual and artistic development and teaches students to respond
artistically to contemporary social, political, and aesthetic issues.
