MFA: MCAD's master of fine arts in visual studies program is a fully on campus community of makers, thinkers, theorists, researchers and creative professionals working in a mentor-based, interdisciplinary environment.

MA in Graphic and Web Design: Gain the real-world graphic design and web design skills and experience to build your portfolio and advance your career through MCAD's 100% online master of arts in graphic and web design program.

MA in Sustainable Design: MCAD’s fully online master of arts in sustainable design was created for busy working professionals who are passionate about sustainability. The program enlists a global community of students and world-class instructors working together to push the sustainability envelope forward across a variety of disciplines and industries. 

It was the best decision I made. It opened up tons of doors and led me to understand how wide the world of design is—that a creative career can take a lot of different shapes—and it gave me countless tools to grow my own business and also meet client's needs.
