Art Center’s graduate program in Media Design offers a two- or three-year Master of Fine Arts curriculum that helps ambitious designers from a variety of backgrounds become design leaders and researchers in emerging fields.

We are looking for risk-takers with hybrid interests who can integrate innovative design with intellectual investigation, who can synthesize theory and practice, and who can pursue their research and making with depth, intelligence and passion. Our students are guided by a faculty of design visionaries and thought leaders who bring knowledge, experience and rigor to their critiques.

We challenge our students to push design in new directions by following their curiosity, refining their expertise and inventing new practices within a context of cultural and technological change.

This adaptability is essential as we prepare designers to lead in amazingly diverse contexts, from scientific research labs to futurist think tanks, from leading corporations to nonprofits and design studios.
