The MFA Products of Design course at the School of Visual Arts NYC prepares students for careers in multiple product design disciplines.
The MFA in Products of Design is a two-year immersive program that prepares exceptional practitioners for leadership in the shifting terrain of design.
We teach multiple design disciplines – industrial design, interaction design, service design, social innovation, and business design – all in one program.
Students build skills and fluency in realms from smart objects to climate futures and behavioural psychology to leadership and strategic management.
We don't have grades – which helps students build trust and encourages students to take a maximum risk. Our only annual job fair matches students with top global consultancies, organizations, and brands, and our partnership with the Museum of Modern Art is the only one of its kind.
Graduates emerge with methods, confidence, and the strong professional networks necessary to succeed in transforming the world and in a field that requires both comforts with ambiguity and complexity and a command of the levers of innovation and adaptation.
Excel at top design firms and progressive organizations to create ingenious enterprises and to become lifelong advocates for the power of design.
