Experience Design from Miami University is where learners develop the transdisciplinary expertise necessary for the highest levels of research and practice of design for a diverse human experience.


Experience Design from Miami University has been designed for distance learning, enabling learners who can not physically leave the working world or their families while in graduate school to level up or change their careers. 

The curricular design of the xdMFA reflects the emerging nature of Experience Design and the rapidly changing realities of contemporary design practice, while still facilitating a learning experience that’s "higher-touch" than a purely online program.

  • Conduct Research: develop and conduct in-depth research on human and system behavior for design innovation.
