ABOUT COMMUNICATION DESIGN (BFA)

The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Communication Design is anchored by two intense core areas of inquiry: typography and interaction. From there, students investigate various approaches, methods, and media through a selection of courses, internships, and sponsored projects within the realms of publication, interaction design, branding, advertising, type design, information design, motion graphics, and environmental design.

For more information, including admission, curriculum, faculty, and courses, visit BFA Communication Design on the Parsons website.
