Kevin Wingate, Director MDP will be hosting an information session on Graduate Media Design Practices/Lab+Field. Kevin will go into detail on application and portfolio requirements. Great time to ask questions!

After the information session, you are invited to stay to view the MDP’s Work-in-Progress Show in the Wind Tunnel Gallery. This is a wonderful moment to see the design making, conversations, and activity from all year levels in MDP. We encourage you to stop by and get insight into the process, design iteration, and specific interests of each of our students.

Ours is a time of constant change: technological transformations, global inequity, and environmental uncertainty. This world demands new design practices. Designers today must be daring, critical, and engaged in their communities. Are you ready?

With a grounding in media, technology, experimental making, and social practice, MDP graduates are unafraid to use design to question the present. Join our MFA program and use your skills — prototyping and research, creative tech and fieldwork — to take on today’s challenges and envision new futures. Work closely with faculty known for cutting-edge research and multidisciplinary expertise. Investigate emerging media, develop new methodologies, engage with diverse cultures, and surprise yourself by making things the likes of which you have never seen before.

Our alumni go on to become design leaders in every conceivable field: major technology firms, innovative nonprofit organizations, and independent design practices.
