Master of Arts in Strategic Design

 The Master of Arts in Strategic Design is a specialized program that delivers the breadth of an M.B.A. program and the depth of an M.F.A. in design.

Students who want to elevate their professional options at the intersection of design, business and communications strategy are encouraged to apply for the MASD program. The portfolio school model replicates a creative professional environment allowing students to launch their creative career with hands-on, professional leadership experience, global industry connections and an exceptional portfolio and career placement.

Master of Arts in Teaching

Founded on the central principles of the liberal arts, Furman’s MAT is for those wanting to inspire the next generation through a career in secondary education (grades 9-12).

Undergraduate majors that qualify for the program include history, politics and international affairs, biology, chemistry, physics, English, French and Spanish.
