From business ventures to social justice, cultural research to experimental mediums, transportation systems to spatial experiences, ArtCenter’s renowned graduate programs offer designers and artists exceptional opportunities to create unique and personal career and life paths.
ArtCenter offers programs of graduate study leading to the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree in Art, Film, Graphic Design, and Media Design Practices. A Master of Science (MS) degree is offered in Furniture, Lighting & Fixtures Design, Industrial Design, Spatial Experience Design, and Transportation Systems and Design. ArtCenter also offers two online Master of Design (MDes) programs: Brand Design and Strategy and Interaction Design. Students studying in the Industrial Design program have the opportunity to pursue a dual-degree with the Drucker School of Management, which results in an MS in Industrial Design from ArtCenter and the MBA from Drucker; this is the Innovation Systems Design program. Students can apply for the ISD program after enrollment in the ArtCenter Industrial Design program.
