According to U.S. News & World Report’s 2013 edition of America’s Best Graduate Schools, RIT is among the top colleges and universities in the nation for master’s programs in fine arts. The rankings are based solely on the results of a peer assessment survey completed in 2011, featuring input from art school deans and other top art school academics at 230 Master of Fine Arts programs in art and design from across the country. RIT was ranked as the 8th best fine arts school for industrial design graduate studies. Highlights of the rankings will be published in the April 3rd edition of U.S. News & World Report.
At RIT, we believe that industrial design education lies at the nexus of theory, process and practice. Industrial design is a human-centered discipline which requires an understanding of the complex relationships between culture and commerce. Our varied and experienced faculty expose our students to the history, context and state of the art while imparting the skills necessary to compete as contemporary designers.
