Experience Design

Research + Projects

As an XD:MFA student, fill your days with discoveries and "a-ha" moments.

Research-Driven

You can't ignite the spark of discovery by watching from a distance. As an XD:MFA student you will use applied research to design, develop, deploy and test your own ideas, gaining insight and knowledge by doing.

Human-Centered

To meet a population's shifting needs, you must get to know them. As an XD:MFA student, you will embrace a human-centered approach. You will discover and define areas of need by directly engaging with target populations. This direct interaction will result in relevant, impactful design solutions.

Technology-Fueled

Technology permeates our daily interactions. As an XD:MFA student, you will explore how technology has shaped and continues to shape human experience. At the same time, new skills in coding and designing interactive experiences will empower you to redesign the future.

Collaboratively-Crafted

By collaborating across disciplines, engaging with visiting designers, and co-creating new technologies and systems with stakeholders, you will develop relevant and often unexpected outcomes. In the XD: MFA program, we don't explore how to solve problems for others; we embrace solving problems with others.

The XD:MFA Program

“Program or be programmed.” —Douglas Rushkoff

MFA

Graduates earn a Master of Fine Arts degree, a terminal degree in the field of design. This degree will enable you to pursue new areas of professional practice or transition into a teaching career.

2 Year and 3 Year Options

MFA: students who enter with design training immerse immediately into research-oriented work (two years).

Design Intensive + MFA: students without design backgrounds blend into existing undergraduate design courses their first year and upon successful completion join the graduate program in their second year (three years).

Miami University

Chartered in 1809, Miami University is one of the oldest public universities in the country. Ranked third among all U.S. institutions of higher learning for superior undergraduate education, Miami's dedication to learning and access to faculty creates an empowering environment for graduate students.

Oxford, Ohio

Located 40 minutes from Cincinnati but secluded enough for intense study, Oxford couples small-town charm with the culture and opportunities of a city.
