The Master of Graphic Design program is one-year, full-time course of advanced study in the field. The program places primary importance on the ability of students to be critical agents; to seek problems and to pose questions. Faculty evaluate graduate students on their ability to define individual investigations and to support their decision-making with an independent program of reading and research, an ability to critically evaluate and articulate discoveries, and an ability to synthesize ideas through the creation of design projects. The main thrust of our graduate program is to provide a research dimension to the field by contributing to the understanding of graphic design through investigations into its history, theory, criticism and methodology as well as its practice. Graduate students come from a variety of academic and professional practice experiences. The department accepts students who have an undergraduate degree in graphic design or comparable professional practice experience as well as those with degrees in other disciplines who see a connection between their previous study and graphic design.

Graphic designers are able to analyze communication problems and needs, and to visualize messages, ideas, and feeling in concise, effective, and visually satisfying ways.
The purpose of graphic design may be to inform, identify, clarify, or persuade the public or a specific audience.
The finished design usually combines a drawn or photographic image with letterforms and typography. Most often, the result is reproduced through the printing process, but it may take other forms such as an exhibition, a slide presentation or a package.
Specific job opportunities include the design of advertisements, exhibitions, publications, corporate symbols, packaging, books, signs, magazines, posters, typography, illustrations, photographic images, plus art direction and design consultation.
Employment may be with an organization, a design agency, or on a freelance basis.
The goal, in the development of the curriculum, has been to establish one-year program concentrating on the design process rather than products.
The faculty maintains close contact with students and a careful supervision of curriculum. Students develop understandings and abilities as relate to image making tools and modes. Such understandings are employed for perceptible questioning, clarification, edification, and problem solving. Intuition and objectivity are fostered though design projects, in-depth analysis, and critical evaluation of the issues and processes and their manifestations.
A graduate of this program has a diversified but through knowledge of visual aesthetics, concept communication, and design methodology.
A series of required courses has been formulated to fulfill a designer’s practical, academic, and analytical needs.

The definition of Italian Graphic Design is specifically equal to the transformation of media, which affects how we create messages, how we transmit them, and understanding the changing landscape of design where media and culture intersect. Throughout the two years of major concentration, problems are combined with exploratory and experimental studies in drawing, color, photography, typography, and emerging technologies.

Opportunities for additional study in fine arts, illustration, photography, animation, and emerging technologies are made available as well. Designers work across several media and venues-from handmade images to digital images, still images to time-based communications in cyberspace. 

The Web Design program provides students with the technical skills necessary to develop a compelling web site, including HTML, design, image maps, and dynamic web pages. Students learn to incorporate multimedia effects using animations, splash screens, sound, video, 3-D images, and streaming technology to enhance interactions into various web-based applications. 

The curriculum is supplemented by special lecture programs; workshops with invited designers; and on-site studio seminars in selected design offices and studios, paper and printing plants, and with computer graphic producers. 

With successful completion of the program, students are prepared for entry-level positions as graphic designers or Web Designer with design studios, publishers, corporations, network, or advertising agencies. Students may choose their focus from either Graphic Design or Web Design.
