Art & Design
Upon completion of their sophomore review, BFA students declare a concentration in design, drawing, media, painting, photography, print, or sculpture. Student work ranges from assignment-based in lower-level courses, to their own styles and concepts in advanced courses.
MFA in Design
Studio work in design is research-driven; students develop creative projects by delving deeply into their interests in any area of knowledge. Rutgers is an ideal setting for designers to pursue studio work that explores issues and ideas in the humanities, social sciences and sciences. This media-agnostic program supports students to experiment with a wide range of studio methodologies — both digital and analog — for creating publications, archives, experiences, exhibitions and more.
At Mason Gross, studio practice is the focus of the visual arts curriculum. The graduate program is interdisciplinary and encompasses a wide range of perspectives and fields of study that are explored in seminars that complement studio coursework and critiques.
