What is an MA in Design? It is a graduate-level program that teaches students the fundamentals of design. Many programs stress interdisciplinary work and research-driven design practices. Programs may be comprised of seminars, studio workshops, and independent study that discuss retail merchandising, graphic and apparel design, and designing with digital platforms. Class discussion is usually encouraged, and design studios often offer students an opportunity to explore ideas and influences. Independent study may allow students to pursue learning opportunities in personal areas of interest within the subject. Often a Master of Arts in Design is a terminal degree.

Many students find that earning an MA in Design helps develop communication skills that are useful in a variety of formats. Students also often acquire strong observational and creative problem-solving skills. These attributes may help develop personal relationships and qualify graduates for higher salary positions.

Factors such as location, duration and program type can affect the price of enrollment in a design master’s program. Students should get in touch with their school of choice for more information regarding costs.

There are often many professional opportunities for design school graduates, who could pursue jobs in web design, interactive media or video editing. Other possibilities may include advertising, fashion design, interior design, landscape gardening, film and television production, or product and packaging design. Often students become design researchers, educators or entrepreneurs.
