M.F.A. in Design

Graduate students in the M.F.A. in Design program.

Thank you for your interest in the MFA Design program at the University of Texas, Austin.

In August 2017, the Design program became part of the new School of Design and Creative Technologies. As part of this exciting move, the faculty of the department recognized an opportunity to review and augment the Design curriculum, and to do so we have decided to suspended admissions to the MFA. Acknowledging the designer’s increasingly diverse role in society, we have decided to take one more year in order to implement the enhancements to our MFA offering (including hiring additional faculty). Our aim is to provide an exceptional educational experience that anticipates the skillset of design practitioners for years to come. 

We plan to re-open admissions for the MFA in Design in the Fall of 2019, in preparation for the 2020-2021 academic year.
