Description:The York University Master of Design (MDes) was the first graduate program in graphic design established in Ontario. It is a two-year full-time program for students looking to challenge the conventions of their design experience. Our program accepts talented, highly motivated applicants, interested in a challenging, experimental and intellectually rigorous approach to the practice of design in contemporary context. The MDes program immerses students in an intense environment where they develop their individual and creative potential. The two-year experience begins with coursework and culminates in a thesis project that reflects each student's personal direction for design practice.
