The MFA. If you're looking at the degree as a way to get published, then, no, it's not worth it. If you want to spend the time working with people who can help you develop your craft, then it's something to consider.
I'm halfway through my MFA at Vermont College of Fine Arts. I've been writing (and publishing) for the past 20+ years, but this past year of concentrated study has brought me to a new level in my craft--something I'm not sure I could have reached with self-study.

  • Avatar Loni S What is the difference between a Master of Arts and a Master of Fine Arts in Graphic Design?
    Feb 11, 2009 by Loni S | Posted in Other - Visual Arts

    I was thinking about getting a Master's Degree online in Graphic Design. I saw Master of Arts is 45 hrs. and Master of Fine Arts is 90 hrs. Is there a benefit of getting a Master of Arts Degree? Just wondering if it is impressive on a resume. Thanks!

Maybe the MA program focuses on the communications theory aspects of graphic …/> What do you mean by "45hrs" and "90hrs"? Is that for the whole program, total? I've gone to graduate school for graphic design and I spent 90hrs a week in school, classes, and studio. That's fishy.
