Art Center College of Design’s Media Design Practices students are unafraid to use design to question the present. Join our MFA program and use your skills - prototyping and research, creative technology and fieldwork — to envision the future.


Media Design Practices students at Art Center College of Design work closely with faculty known for cutting-edge research and multidisciplinary expertise. Together, our lively community investigates emerging technologies, develops new methodologies, and applies design to global social issues.

Learning outcomes

ArtCenter is a world class art and design school that’s energized by its Southern California location and Los Angeles networks. Our studio is housed within a soaring, light-filled space — a converted wind tunnel that formerly tested supersonic jet engines. We provide students with large individual work areas and access to workshops, fabrication spaces, and media labs.

We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds and cultures. Our students come to us from the worlds of interaction design, product design, fine arts, film, liberal arts, computer science, architecture, engineering, and more.

Our alumni go on to become design leaders in every conceivable field: major technology firms, innovative nonprofit organizations, and experimental, independent design practices.
