Graduate Graphic Design

Most graduate graphic design programs in the U.S. focus on critical theory and radical exploration, primarily working in print media. Our focus is on transmedia, craft, skill, leadership, and strategic thought with a goal of practical professional improvement.

Our program incorporates typography, form, meaning, and craft across all media with an emphasis on entrepreneurship and leadership. We focus on practical, yet exquisite, reality-based professional solutions.

Our faculty of internationally recognized experts work across multiple media including typography, interactive media, branding, leadership, motion, print, and environmental graphic design.
