Our program is formed around the idea that the right balance of studio activity, theoretical knowledge, industry familiarity, and an awareness of art history will prepare artists to succeed in the professional world.
The MAE program was created for artists that teach. Designed around a teacher's schedule, it's a studio-intensive degree that allows K-12 certified art teachers to beef up, recharge, refresh (and fulfill requirements for maintaining their teaching certification while they're at it).
The MBA Certificate in Design and Innovation Management is for business and creative professionals who want to get an edge in the marketplace. This 12-credit advanced studies certificate can stand alone or be applied towards a Ferris MBA or other graduate program.
