The biennial Colorado International Invitational Poster Exhibition (CIIPE) is a collection from the world’s most distinguished poster artists and designers. Graduate students have the opportunity to participate in the organization and presentation of this event.
The Graphic Design MFA program has a very limited enrollment and we ask that you reach out to us to see when we are accepting new students before applying. Graduate students in our program must demonstrate a strong background in graphic design before being accepted. To learn more about application procedures, please see our admission requirements.
Graduate students occupy a semi-private studio on campus that is shared with other students. The Graphic Design area occupies approximately 4,000 square feet of studio space and includes a dedicated computer lab available for all graphic design students. The lab consists of Mac workstations equipped with current versions of Adobe Creative Suite and other popular, interactive media software. Peripheral printers, scanners, and servers are also provided in the lab.
The Visual Arts Building has its own dedicated Digital Fabrication Lab where you can learn 3D modelling and printing, the operation of laser cutters, and the use of CNC machinery. The Graphic Design concentration enjoys a close relationship with the Nancy Richardson Design Center and offers opportunities for art students to explore more aspects of design. Several of our faculty members serve as instructors and core faculty.
