The innovative Master of Fine Arts Program in Graphic Design at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) is focused on advanced exploration of form, methodology, and practice. The program is informed by a consciousness of contemporary practice, craft, audience, theory, and history, as well as the constantly shifting media environment. A final suite of projects produced by the MFAs—known as Graduate Practice—is a conceptually linked body of work that emerges from each student’s personal agenda. These multi-platform investigations are intended to influence students’ work beyond graduate school and challenge preconceived notions of graphic design practice and outcomes. 

The MFA Program in Graphic Design emphasizes both practical and conceptual skills, and enables each designer to integrate a command of visual language with imagination, theory and technology. Students are trained in print and publication design; web and interface design; motion graphics for broadcast and film; branding, identity and type design; as well as for careers in design history and education. Classes in Graphic Design are small, intimate, and critique-based, fostering debate and discussion as well as imparting formal and practical knowledge.
