The Design program at School of Visual Arts focuses on teaching visual communication problem solving, a skill that can open the door to a host of rewarding careers.


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 needs. 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 particularly empowering.

The Design program at School of Visual Arts is a multidisciplinary educational system in itself, offering separate majors that include Graphic Design, Motion Graphics and 3D Design.

There are no cookie-cutter portfolios here. Of the disciplines that students can major in, each of these areas can be further refined, giving students more possibilities to find their niche.

For example, Graphic Design can be further subdivided into package design, editorial design, information graphics, corporate identity, publication design, CD packaging, book jacket design, environmental design and website design.
