Earn a Master of Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design or Illustration. Marywood’s “Get Your Masters with the Masters” MFA Program is a low-residency program for a 60-credit Master of Fine Arts degree in graphic design or illustration. It’s specifically designed for working art directors, designers, illustrators, new media artists and art educators who have to budget their time and resources carefully, while continuing with their full-time occupations. While production and technical skills are stressed, the thrust of our program is on creativity and concept.
Low-Residency, Independent Study: One-third of the course work (20 credits) is delivered through independent creative problem-solving experiences. The other two-thirds (40 credits) consist of lectures, summer classes, and study tours in New York City and other major cities. You can complete all program requirements in just three years through 4 two-week residential summer sessions at Marywood, 6 study tours, and independent work. Scholarships, grants, and other financial aid are available to those who qualify.
