MFA Applied Craft + Design: Thinking Through Making

Encouraging a cross-disciplinary studio environment in which the workshop is a lab to collaboratively explore design and making processes, the mentor-based MFA Applied Craft + Design Program welcomes students from a wide range of creative backgrounds to make original work with an applied purpose. Connecting design thinking to design doing, Oregon College of Art and Craft and Pacific Northwest College of Art have collaborated to create a unique MFA Program grounded in hands-on making, entrepreneurial strategies, and social and environmental engagement.

With a curriculum focused on the development of a strong artistic voice, the realization of work for a specific community or client, and entrepreneurism that connects making a living with making a difference, the MFA in Applied Craft and Design is the only graduate program of its kind. Thinking Through Making showcases a few of the characteristics that make this graduate program truly distinct: its Design Build Intensive, the mentor/student relationship, Creative Entrepreneurship, material exploration with wild abandon and the hybrid potential of a studio practice.
