School of Graduate Studies

The School of Graduate Studies (SGS) offers three Master of Arts (MA) programs, two Master of Fine Arts (MFA) programs, and two Master of Professional Studies (MPS) programs. FIT’s graduate programs focus on developing critical thinking, effective communication skills, creative business strategies, and technical expertise.


The School of Graduate Studies at FIT prepares future leaders of the global art, design, fashion, business, and marketing industries. Our programs bring students into networks of collaboration with industry and institutions, facilitating innovation, and experimental research. We link creative practice and business skills to redefine graduate education, embracing work that is practical and scholarly, modes of study that are collegial and independent, and intellectual inquiry that is interdisciplinary and highly specialized. At FIT, graduate study is founded on principles of balance and focused on personal growth, regardless of field.
