Master of Art+Design Overview [ details ]

We are glad you decided to explore the offerings of our program.

The Master of Art and Design extends the departments long standing commitment to interdisciplinary and collaborative education to the graduate level.The unique feature of this graduate program is the blending of art, design, and both hand and digital technologies. The degree offers two concentrations, each with opportunities for collaboration and interaction with other programs on campus.

We know that you can’t get a real ”feel” for a department from a simple written program description. At this site, we try to give you a feel for who we are and what studying here might be like.

Each section, accessible on the labeled bands above, lets you explore a different aspect of the program, with lots of visuals. And, oh, don’t miss the videos in the courses and curriculum section. We hope you will come away with an appreciation for our program and its resources.

We look forward to your questions and the arrival of your application.

Susan Brandeis,
Director of Graduate Programs, Art and Design

”Some people might look at me and say, ‘Now she must be a deep thinker’, but what they don’t realize is that I’m not figuring out the quantum equation for the rotation of the earth, I’m just watching characters moving about in my head. How fortunate I am to get the chance to bring them to life for others to enjoy.”
