Graduate Program in Graphic Design
The graduate Graphic Design program focuses on development of individualized, advanced design thinking and design education processes. The M.A. artist statement and M.F.A. Thesis in Graphic Design allow innovative exploration of topics relevant to the delicate balance of theory and practice.
In Graduate Workshop students explore a range of contemporary topics including social engagement and advocacy, sustainability, communication methods and models, user experience, and emerging modes of visual literacy. This course, along with a shared Graduate Graphic Design studio space, invites free exchange of ideas among peers.
Through teaching and research assistantships, Graduate students in this program are provided valuable experiences in the processes specific to contemporary graphic design education. As a result of these unique teaching and assistantship opportunities, past graduates of the Graphic Design M.F.A. program now hold teaching positions at national and international colleges and universities.
