School of Visual Arts


SVA is the largest, independent, regionally accredited college of art in the United States. Students who choose SVA are often attracted by the passion of our student body, the rigors of our curriculum, the industry standards maintained within our studio facilities, and the energy and excitement that is New York City. SVA’s mission includes educating students who aspire to become professional artists as well as a commitment to serving the greater good through community service. It is also one of the founding schools for Design Ignites Change.

The “MFA Designer As Author” is predicated on the growing need for content providers throughout the visual media. Drawing on ones’ fluency with the graphic design language of type and image, this program is the first designed exclusively to encourage authorship and entrepreneurship in a broad range of media.
