Sound Design: MFA
from the Bulletin
The objective of the MFA Design, Production, and Management programs is to help students become consummate professionals. Each student is encouraged to hone skills that enable expression of a bold personal aesthetic. The key to this training lies in a mix of classes and design/production assignments, individually tailored to each student by a faculty of practicing professionals.
Individualized programs of study vary greatly depending on the level of preparation each graduate student brings to his or her first year of training, and there exists no model that is truly representative. In general, students in the Design program can expect their training regimen to mix both ongoing studio classes—which enhance rendering skills—with design classes that alternate short-term exercises with long-term projects in applied design. Similarly, Production and Management candidates will participate in both hands-on assignments and in-class instruction designed to enhance and broaden their skill sets.
