MFA Integrated Design


Course Description

GRADUATES OF THE INTEGRATED DESIGN PROGRAM WILL BE INTERDISCIPLINARY PROFESSIONALS WHO CAN THINK AND CREATE ACROSS TRADITIONAL 2D, 3D AND DIGITAL DESIGN DISCIPLINES.

A new kind of designer is emerging – design strategist, brand ambassador, service designer, design researcher, social innovator. Today’s complex design problems need a holistic approach for understanding and creating solutions. Integrated Design is for designers who seek career opportunities outside the traditional 2D or 3D boundaries. The program is not just about creating beautiful artifacts or studying a random combination of different mediums or disciplines; it is about creating design thinkers, with an eye toward social innovation. It is about having the confidence born out of strong creative skills in 2D, 3D or digital disciplines to advance your career outside the conventions of a single practice.

Our curriculum integrates relevant aspects of business practices with human-centered research into the creative process to prepare you for success in the 21st century. It is structured to stimulate innovative and entrepreneurial thinking in a rigorous, interdisciplinary environment – where collaboration throughout the design process is a core pedagogical tenet.

As a student in the College’s MFA program in Integrated Design, you will be among highly talented people who share a passion for solving problems. Whether it’s branding strong human touchpoints that differentiate a cancer surgery center in the eyes of its patients, or developing powerful co-creation tools for a non-profit organization dedicated to helping families become self-sufficient, or designing a wearable device for preventing myopia in children, you will be challenged to think about how design can find answers to complex issues faced by society. Simply put, how can we, as designers, be a catalyst for impact, rally engagement and transform people’s lives?
