KU offers the first & only Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Communication Design (KUCD) within the PA State system of Higher Education. Our 100% online program is geared toward working professionals and our classes are designed to work around your schedule. While we don’t get together here in Kutztown, we are actively engaged with our cohorts through “in-person” zoom meetings, critiques, and class discussion.
KUCD is a community of designers — graphic designers, advertising designers, interactive designers, illustrators, design entrepreneurs, design educators (aspiring and current) — who are passionate about what they create. Take control of the creative freedom that our 100% online curriculum provides to explore personal and professional design aspirations. We empower you to evoke meaningful change, develop your strengths and celebrate the future of design—all through individual development and visual expression.
THIS PROGRAM IS FOR DESIGNERS WHO WANT TO:
Small class sizes allows students to work one-on-one with faculty to develop their own design voice—whether it’s graphic design, interactive design, advertising design, illustration or education— to customize their education learning to their personal career goals.
We encourage students to think innovatively and use in-depth investigation to solve design problems and formulate creative expression. The KUCD MFA program promotes a well-rounded education through the study of design history, contemporary topics, typography, emerging media, and the exploration of personal and professional goals. Students ultimately create an original capstone graduate research project exploring their creative path to professional or academic aspirations.
Your experience begins with Journey Week — an amazing four days of online sessions diving into the MFA experience, launching your first classes, and getting to know your cohort.
Fall semester: May 1st
