The MFA in Graphic Design was named one of the top 11 MFA in Graphic Design programs in the country in 2014 by Print Magazine.  

“VCFA’s MFA in Graphic Design is one of the nation’s first low-residency programs in graphic design that is built around a student’s individual interests and goals,” said Monk. “Since its inception in 2010 it has established itself as one of the top programs in the nation. The new academic track and additional financial support will strengthen the program even more, working to ensure the continued success of our graduates.”


The 3-year track program in Graphic Design is designed for graduate students with backgrounds in liberal arts, fine arts, and sciences. In the 3-year program, the first year is designed to bolster students’ strengths and critical abilities in typography, image making, and design history, theory, and authorship. Upon completing the initial year of study, students spend two more years of study at the level of their peers enrolled in the 2-year program. Students in both the 2-year program and the 3-year program will graduate with an MFA in Graphic Design from VCFA.

We’re so excited to make this available!
