Master’s Degrees at the School of Design

Our graduate programs are grounded in the belief that both human connection and individuality matter. The School of Design is committed to offering students a world-class graduate-level design education through our three master's programs—Master of Art in Design, Master of Design in Design for Interactions, and Master of Professional Studies in Design for Interactions (for MA students only).

All alumni of Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Design go on to expand the practice of design in profound and unique ways as they head out on their own career journeys. For Karen McCurdy (who graduated as Karen Dann, BFA ’84), that journey led to an over 30-year career of active and reserve duty in the United States Army.
