VISUALS HAVE ROOTS.
SACI’s MFA in Communication Design students have the unique opportunity to research the roots of Western visual conventions through direct experience of the extraordinary Italian artistic heritage, while living in a country that is at the cutting edge of Communication Design innovation.
They pursue a curriculum that integrates practical and critical skills, encouraging individual innovation and creative collaboration.
In their graduate seminars, students explore a range of contemporary Communication Design practices, visit designers in their studios, and meet curators, critics, and other significant figures in the art and design worlds. They attend international art and design fairs and are encouraged, through individual practice and group critiques, to explore to the fullest their potential as communication designers.
During their first year, they put together a program that balances independent study with classroom study. In their second year, emphasis is placed upon career options for emerging communication designers. Students gain practical experience as SACI Teaching Assistants and undertake Design Internships at Tuscan design firms.
SACI also offers MFA in Studio Art (Painting or Drawing), MFA in Photography, and MA in Art History, Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Programs in Studio Art and Conservation, and fall, spring, and summer courses for undergraduates and graduates.
