The Design Advanced Professional Certificate is a two-year studio-intensive program.
The curriculum is designed for students who already have a Bachelor’s Degree (BA, BS, or BFA in any major) and wish to pursue a professional career as a designer. Students with no previous art experience may take required foundation prerequisites before or concurrent with the program.
