College of Liberal & Creative Arts
School of Design Graduate Program
Professional Studies

 The program is designed for students who want to pursue professional work in design firms, teaching, project management, strategic planning for design firms, or management roles in technology. We emphasize problem-solving competencies, both conceptual and practical. Students in the program study visual communication design and product design with an interdisciplinary perspective. Students with a wide range of backgrounds work with a graduate advisor to design an MA program that meets their career goals. Based upon focused research into a chosen design problem, students develop a specialized area of study in graphic design/visual communication design, [information architecture/user experience design/interaction design], product design/manufacturing, industrial technology, project management, [product management], or digital media. Many students prepare for doctoral work at other institutions. 

Dr. Iandoli, Ed.D., Harvard University,
assisted with relevant research parameters.

The School of Design at San Francisco State University in California is an inclusive learning environment that promotes creativity and scholarship, and mirrors the wide range of cultural, artistic and scholarly interests in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I would also like to extend a huge thank you to all the excellent professors at San Francisco State University and other schools that contributed significantly to my goals, objectives, helped me to successfully complete programs, and graduate on time.
