MFA in Applied Craft + Design Studios

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.

Combining a mentor-based approach with an exceptional visiting artists program, students work one-on-one with nationally and internationally recognized designers, makers, and scholars in a self-directed curriculum that challenges them to bring to life the full strength of their ideas and skills.

The MFA Applied Craft + Design Studio is housed in a dramatic 13,500 sf former warehouse space in the Bison Building. Each student has a dedicated individual work space, as well as use of over 6,000 sf of work areas shared between the program's 30 students.

We will also be hosting a lecture by Susan Szenasy on Oct 7.
