MFA in Graphic Design

Graphic design is a professional major that addresses a range of advanced visual communication problems, with an emphasis on meaning, form, and function. In a professional studio setting, students work with faculty on the understanding and implementation of theories, principles, and methods related to concept development, design process, context, history and criticism, research, evaluation, visual aesthetics, typography, systems thinking, information design, inter - and cross-disciplinary collaboration, as well as social and ethical responsibility. Course assignments and thesis projects incorporate both theory and application in the solution of hypothetical and actual graphic design problems. Courses within this major evidence a balanced approach toward the integration of digital media and traditional processes. Final design outcomes focus on small- and large-scale, two- dimensional or three-dimensional printed artifacts and environmental graphic design solutions, with opportunities to develop relevant for time-based and/or interactive digital applications as well.
