School of Visual Arts’ Design Department and Advertising Department teach visual communication problem solving, a skill that can open the door to a host of rewarding careers.

Our program is a multidisciplinary educational system in itself, offering four separate majors: Graphic Design, Advertising, Motion Graphics, and Interactive Design.

In addition to a distinguished faculty that includes eight Hall of Fame laureates, we offer a wide range of course options that are tailored to each student’s strengths and interests. We achieve this by offering more studio courses than any institution in the world. This gives students the opportunity to develop their own vision, making the entire educational experience empowering. There are no cookie-cutter portfolios here.

Of the four disciplines that students can major in, each of these areas can be further sub-divided, giving students more possibilities to find their voice. For example, Design includes package design, editorial design, information graphics, branding, publication design, book jacket design, environmental design, and interactive design.
