The MFA: Design (Dynamic Media Institute) at MassArt explores the role and possibilities of dynamic media in communication design. Each student’s vision for design develops into an original body of ideas and fresh practice.

Students come to DMI from diverse backgrounds: architects, industrial designers, programmers, engineers, filmmakers, musicians, anthropologists, photographers, fine artists, and graphic designers. They come from all over the world, including Central and South America, Asia, Europe and the United States. The student body reflects the program’s cross-disciplinary approach to dynamic media design.

Admission to DMI is highly selective. The 60-credit MFA: Design program is offered in three tracks: a two-year track in four semesters; a three-year track in five semesters; or a three-year track in six semesters, the difference being the distribution of elective credits. DMI also offers a one-year fellowship “non-matriculating track” to which candidates are accepted based on specific project proposals.
