During the Design and Technology MFA program offered at The New School students can work with peers in related programs including Communication Design, Photography, Fine Arts, and Illustration.
The full-residency, two-year, 60-credit MFA in Design and Technology (MFA DT) curriculum is studio based, but critical thinking and study of the design process are central to the program. Areas of practice include interaction design, physical computing, game design, new media art, digital fabrication, data visualization, and critical design. Candidates build ideas through prototyping, synthesizing research and practice.
