NCA is a premiere art college of this country and it gives me great pleasure as the Principal of NCA to present to you an overview of our academic programs and the various features that embody the spirit of this great institution. We are proud of our past as NCA is over 140 years old with a distinguished history, yet we have not rested on these laurels alone. We have forged ahead to embrace the future and impart high standard of art education which is of international standard.

While the Lahore Campus is situated on the historic Mall Road, our Rawalpindi Campus was set up at the Liaquat Memorial Hall in January 2006. Both the campuses are a hub of academic and cultural activity. We select students from all across the country, therefore cultural diversity is a hallmark of NCA.

Our academic programs are structured and designed to produce professionals who are equipped to meet the requirements of a competitive work environment at national and international level.

NCA offers both graduate and postgraduate degrees in various areas of specialization. While the Fine Arts Department of NCA has a long and illustrious legacy of excellence, our college also caters to a growing demand for professionals in other art related fields, therefore the Department of Fine Arts, Design, Architecture, Musicology, Film and Television, Multimedia Arts, Visual Art, Interior Design and Cultural Studies offer students diverse options in various areas of study.

NCA boasts experienced faculty comprising of practitioners and professionals, many of whom have made a name nationally and internationally. We focus on both theory and practice with special emphasis on imparting traditional as well as modern knowledge.

I, along with my faculty take great pride in our contribution to imparting knowledge and encouraging productive, creative individuals who contribute to the artistic enrichment of the country. It is in this spirit that I invite you to be a part of this unique institution.
