Course Description:
In our increasingly visual world, the illustrator plays a critical role in communicating ideas and information. The convergence of art and technology is creating opportunities and challenges that require new skills and new perspectives on the field. FIT’s Master of Arts in Illustration prepares you to be an innovative visual communicator, and fosters the entrepreneurial approach professional illustrators need.

This program is for self-motivated illustrators who want to further develop their personal vision and for experienced illustrators seeking to reinvigorate their careers. Studio practice in drawing, painting, and digital media—and the integration of all three—provides a platform for you to find your own voice. Through a focus on creative writing and research, leading to a written thesis, you’ll gain a broad perspective on the illustrator’s role across different media. A faculty of noted illustrators offer rigorous assignments designed to elicit high-quality, competitive work. You’ll hear distinguished guest lecturers and take advantage of FIT’s New York City location with frequent field trips to museums and galleries.

The program culminates in a visual capstone project that is displayed in an exhibition at The Museum at FIT. Projects have included children’s books, graphic novels and comic books, murals, and reportage.

Highlights
  • The faculty includes the current and past presidents of the prestigious Society of Illustrators, members of the New York Art Director’s Club and the Society for Publication Designers, and winners of the Society of Illustrators Educator of the Year Award.
