Use design to transform the world.
You have talent and ideas—but that’s just the beginning. As a designer, you can have a positive impact on how people interact with the world.
In our BFA in Graphic Design, you'll discover ways to communicate meaningfully through visual design. You’ll learn design thinking, problem solving, and the visual and conceptual skills needed to create work that serves a variety of purposes. Plus, you'll have opportunities to supplement these skills with state-of-the-art visual effects training.
Get hands-on experience using industry-standard tools for print, motion, and interactive media, while surrounded by a thriving community of experienced art and design faculty.
Internships are a core requirement of the Graphic Design program, providing professional experience outside the classroom. Students intern at both small and large studios in Boston and beyond. In the classroom, you’ll be able to work directly with real clients, learn how to address their needs, and produce sophisticated visual work. These experiences cultivate the practical and professional skills necessary to navigate the business side of design.
Graphic design is a broad discipline, allowing you to represent a diverse range of interests and passions in your portfolio. We’ll teach you how to differentiate yourself, promote your work, and develop a portfolio that’s professional and unique.
