Design (MFA)

Designers are innovative problem solvers who process information and user needs to improve communication and environments. The variety and complexity of design issues is expanding. Developments in technology, information processing, and materials have affected design practice and education - new challenges confront the designer and the design educator. There is today a greater need for balance between human beings and their sociocultural, natural, and built environment.

Our program will excel you in developing unique, innovative and effective design solutions, communicating concepts and solutions clearly, understanding philosophies, theories and terminology of design, rendering, executing and producing design, presenting concepts and solutions orally and in writing, and developing high standards of professional practice.
