About

The two-year MFA Graphic Design curriculum at California Institute of the Arts CalArts  focuses on the advanced exploration of form, methodology and practice, informed by a consciousness of the following contexts: contemporary practice, craft, audience, theory and history, and the constantly shifting media environment. 

Overview

We offer a master degree in Graphic Design at California Institute of the Arts CalArts. Individual critique within a communal studio structure helps designers to develop a personal direction and agenda, intended to influence work beyond graduate school. The first-year curriculum consists of a sequence of weekly seminars in which research and studio projects are examined and discussed. 

Key Features 

  • The second year in residence is dedicated to developing and realizing a major thesis project that contributes to—and challenges—the graphic design community at large.
  • In each of the two years, graduate students deepen and refine their work through a set of required and elective courses covering subjects such as type design, web design, typography, motion graphics, design theory and design history. 

Programme Structure

  • In addition to CalArts' rich and diverse community and naturally collaborative atmosphere, the Institute provides several programs of study that can be pursued concurrently with a student's chosen metier.
