About This Site

Welcome to the Master of Fine Arts in Information Design and Visualization, the first MFA program in the country entirely dedicated to information design and data visualization. Our interdisciplinary program trains students to harness visual languages to communicate about socially relevant issues, taking full advantage of the incredible breadth of research opportunities at Northeastern University.

This website is our ‘digital sandbox,’ a space for updates about our activities, collaborations, events and projects in progress. The official website of the MFA program with information about curriculum and application procedures can be found here.

We welcome applicants from all disciplines and at all points in their professional careers. I encourage you to check out the collection of stories and student work below, explore our curriculum, and contact us if you have any questions about applying.

Feel free to subscribe to our mailing list for news about events and talks at our lab.
