Application Deadline: January 15

As the application deadline grows closer, we look forward to meeting prospective students. Friday, January 15, is the deadline for submitting an application to the MFA Interaction Design program. The new MFA is an inventive two-year program that trains students to intimately understand how design can affect human behavior, and to think more holistically about the products and services they’re creating. The program explores the strategic role of interaction design in shaping everyday life, and intends to increase the relevancy of design to business and society so designers can make a difference.
