We are makers, researchers, and thinkers with a focus on creating better futures for all.
Situated within a top-tier research university, our undergraduate and graduate programs integrate research, process, and making to inform a range of responses to challenges we see in the world.
Meet our Faculty
For over 50 years, we have prepared students for various practices and careers in graphic design, design & visual communications, interaction design, and beyond.
We have a 20+ year history in graduate design education, first offering an MFA in Art with a focus in graphic design, and now the MXD—focused on participatory and codesigning with people in context—using our research expertise and interest.
The BFA program promotes a rich and intensive studio experience allowing the undergraduate student to take art and design to the maximum depth possible in preparation to be an artist or designer, or to continue further study in art and design via a graduate program, or to even begin a career path directly related to the arts.
