Students in the Master of Professional Studies in Communication
Design at Parsons School of Design challenge convention to create problem-solving visual communication strategies for an increasingly digital world.
This new, intensive degree program will equip you with the cutting-edge design methods and technical skills needed to meet the growing marketplace demand for technology-driven products and services.
You’ll create innovative solutions to relay messages and ideas in innovative and informative ways. And you’ll graduate with a unique, forward-looking aesthetic, anchored in leadership skills that will set you apart in the professional world.
Change begins with a question. What will you ask?
Each semester includes a six-credit Major Studio. Students learn how to design and develop complex digital products and come to understand the nature of globalized visual culture in the 21st century. Specific topics include counterculture, designer as author, digital craft, and digital storytelling.
“Designers can build on their existing expertise and develop the digital product skills needed to envision and shape the future of technology-based interaction.”
