Over the course of the Program, BFA Graphic Design students create a body of work that is not simply a string of assignments—but which is uniquely theirs—and prepares them to carve an independent path into graphic design practice with a compelling portfolio marked by strong ideas expressed through form.
The BFA track is centered around core courses supported by a number of required and elective classes, allowing both structure and flexibility within the curriculum, covering all aspects of graphic design practice. Each year in residence builds on the experience of the previous as a sequence of additional classes explore image-making, typography and design history. Baseline coursework is followed by more specialized classes in areas such as web design, motion graphics and type design.
In addition to core studio classes, all candidates in the Program are required to pass a Graduation Portfolio Review in order to complete the program and obtain the BFA degree.
