The Parsons Communication Design BFA program offers courses, internships, and sponsored projects involving publication design, web and mobile design, branding, advertising, type design, information design, motion graphics, and environmental design. Students approach this variety of design methods and media after a year-long foundation in two core areas of study—typography and interaction.
Communication Design majors examine the social and cultural ramifications of communication. Students learn the art of persuasion by creating compelling messages, narrating them in meaningful ways, and crafting strategies to broadcast them to the world.
At every point students are encouraged to undertake real-world collaborative projects and to pursue internships and other work experiences in New York City studios, agencies, and offices.
Graduates pursue careers in advertising, motion and broadcast graphics, book and magazine design, package design, corporate branding, information visualization, interactive design, exhibition and retail design, architectural and environmental graphics, apparel design, and other fields.
