Graduate Studies in the College of Arts, Media and Design

Welcome to graduate studies at CAMD. We deliver an outstanding graduate education in traditional areas while exploring new approaches to this generation’s transformative questions. Our graduate programs highlight intersectional approaches that bring together human, technological, and data literacies to push the boundaries of our disciplines.

We offer diverse program types to meet individual career and academic goals, including terminal degrees (Doctor of Philosophy, Master of Fine Arts, Master of Architecture); professional degrees (Master of Science, Master of Arts, Master of Design); PlusOne pathways; and Graduate Certificates. Our graduate degree programs are inherently interdisciplinary, led by research faculty across the departments of Art + Design, Architecture, Journalism, Music, and Theatre. Coursework incorporates a range of scholarly, applied, and experiential perspectives, complemented by lively community activities including lecture series, exhibitions, symposia, and more.

This is an exciting time to pursue advanced education and scholarship in creative fields. Never have the arts and culture been so clearly essential to our social, economic, and environmental future: From cultural outreach in underserved communities to designing ethical virtual environments for health and security; from green building innovation to cutting-edge journalism; from provocative performances and thought-provoking installations to incisive data visualizations that change how we view the world—our faculty and students are involved in a wealth of academic endeavors, creative enterprises, and professional experience.
