GDUSA’s list included schools from across the nation, and recognized a breadth of traditional, online, and hybrid higher education institutions that “…prepare students to work in professional graphic design.” VCFA’s MFA in Graphic Design program was honored among institutions such as Yale University, the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and Ringling College of Art and Design.

For over a decade, the VCFA MFA in Graphic Design program has dedicated itself to bringing students from around the world an MFA experience through the low-residency, mentorship model. Students of this two-year program have the unique opportunity to work one-on-one with a faculty advisor on a study plan tailored to their interests. Through invigorating, nine-day residencies every winter and summer packed with lectures, exhibitions, critiques, and workshops, students further expand their thinking, professional network, and personal community. VCFA graduates leave the program with new research methods, critical expertise, and a body of design work critical to the next stages of their careers and creative lives.

The VCFA MFA in Graphic Design program is deeply honored by this GDUSA recognition, and would like to thank the various communities inside and outside of VCFA who made it possible.
