The MFA Graphic Design program at BU pairs intensive making with research, design theory and professional practices. Graduate students have 24-hour access to brand new facilities, including private studios, larger community work-spaces, and a digital printing and fabrication center.

Intensive making is a core element of the program. In addition to digital tools and workspaces, MFA Graphic Design students have access to printmaking facilities — including etching, lithography, silkscreen, bookmaking, letterpress and digital printmaking studios — as well as photography studios, a fully equipped woodshop, and sculpture and ceramics facilities, allowing designers to realize their projects in virtually any media.

Due to recent building renovations and the introduction of brand-new facilities, the Graphic Design program is expanding and diversifying graduate offerings to include a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program. This full-time, one year intensive training program is ideal for those who are entering the graphic design field for the first time.
