Graphic Design Program

MU’s Graphic Design is a distinct area within the SVS Art Program. A series of five sequential foundation courses prepare students to move on to develop deeper knowledge in specific courses, such as Packaging Design, Corporate Identity, Letterpress Printing, Hand Lettering, and Design History. The Graphic Design program offers both BFA and BA degrees and requires a portfolio review after the foundation courses.

MU Graphic Design graduates have gone on to award-winning careers in media, entertainment and advertising, in both agency and in-house settings. Our graduates are employed in great jobs from coast to coast in all areas of design. From MCA records in Los Angeles to Cosmopolitan Magazine in NYC, from Hallmark cards to Nestle Purina they are making their mark in the world of design. Our alums have won Grammys, Emmys, Addys, have been featured on TheDieline, the Today Show and won many other awards for design. They are entrepreneurs starting businesses small and large, from design studios to hand lettering businesses, freelance design to international companies selling all over the globe.
