About

The MFA in Design for Emerging Technologies program from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago offers students resources in interface design, physical interaction design, information architecture, physical computing, software-based optimization and analysis, and design for embedded control and robotic activation. 

Overview

SAIC's highly acclaimed Master of Design for Emerging Technologies in Studio at School of the Art Institute of Chicago is a 60 credit hour program that supports creative work, inquiry, and investigation across 14 departments as part of the advanced preparation of fine arts practitioners.

Learning outcomes

We encourage our MFA Studio students to move beyond their home departments, working with faculty and peers in any area that supports their graduate work and research. Graduate studios for MFA students are spread across campus in clusters that allow for robust, interdisciplinary exchange.

Graduate-level courses and topical seminars support individual studio work by exposing students to the larger dialogues around the production, exhibition, and function of art and design as well as their expanded cultural production and reception. Students design a personalized curriculum by choosing from a wide variety of seminars, courses, and graduate advisors linked to numerous studio, design, and academic departments. Graduate critiques, central to the MFA experience, alternate between discipline-specific panels in the fall semester and interdisciplinary panels in the spring semester.
