Careers in Art & Design
Your Professional Success is Important to Us
For over 85 years, the New England School of Art & Design at Suffolk University has prepared its graduates for success as professional artists and designers. Our alumni have worked around the globe in an impressive array of roles– exhibiting work in New York galleries, hosting design shows for HGTV, illustrating books or designing for the NBA and the NHL. We’re proud of what our alumni have achieved, and what they continue to accomplish as members of the Suffolk community. And most would agree that it’s the training that began early on in their academic careers that has fueled their professional success.
Our graphic design graduates work across all media and around the globe. Whether your studies lead you to become a web designer, a creative director, work in television or run your own studio, graphic design is a diverse and growing field. Our grads have held design positions at many notable companies, including the Boston Red Sox, Walt Disney, Reebok International, Arnold World Wide, HBO and the White House (yes that White House), just to name a few.
Our MA in Interior Architecture program prepares students for a range of employment options within the interior design profession, including commercial, residential, institutional, retail and hospitality design. Some choose to start their own business, while others work for architectural firms or as in-house designers for companies and institutions. Regardless of their professional path, the training they received at Suffolk is recognized as some of the strongest around. For the past three years, our MA program has been ranked in DesignIntelligence’s top 10 list of America’s best architecture & design schools. Each program was assessed by practitioners from leading national firms who have direct experience in hiring and evaluating the performance of recent design graduates. This national recognition not only reinforces our students’ exceptional training, but it means that your Suffolk degree carries weight in the national design community.
Graduates of our new post-professional MFA in Interior Architecture program will be prepared for leadership roles in global practice and to teach at the university level.
