If you're checking grad schools for next September, be sure to take a look at the brand new MFA Products of Design program at SVA. Chaired by Core77's Allan Chochinov, the department will welcome guests to its very first Information Session/Open House on Saturday, November 5th, from 11am to 2pm. Meet the faculty, chat with other prospective students, and get a great preview of the curriculum.
Please join us for our inaugural Information Session. The MFA in Prodcuts of Design is an immersive, two-year graduate program that prepares exceptional practitioners across various disciplines for leadership in the shifting terrain of design. We educate heads, hearts and hands to reinvent systems and catalyze positive change through the business of making.
Students gain fluency in the three fields crucial to the future of design: Making--from the handmade to digital fabrication; Structures--business, research, systems, strategy, user experience and interaction; and Narratives--including video storytelling, history and point of view. Through project-based work that engages emerging science and materials, social cooperation and public life, students develop the skills and fluency to create positive consequence. They emerge with the confidence, experience and professional networks to fill senior positions at top design firms and progressive organizations, to create ingenious enterprises of their own, and to become lifelong advocates for the power of design.
Check out all the goings on at the department goings on at the site.
