    Master Programs in Professional Studies Arts and Design

    A Master of Professional Studies (MPS) is a post-baccalaureate degree designed to combine practical knowledge, experience, and analysis in an interdisciplinary field for the purpose of focusing more specifically within that field.

    What are Professional Studies in Art and Design? A Master of Professional Studies with this concentration may hone in on applied areas such as lighting or interior design or may look exclusively at computer and web games development. Coursework may include classes in design and concept, psychology, computer science, application and sustainability, strategic management, economics, project management, and branding and marketing. This type of degree seeks to prepare graduates for active leadership roles in actual projects, from visualization to completion.

    One of the great benefits to a professional studies program is the amount of contact a student experiences with leaders in their fields of study. For example, in the Master of Games Development program, students may work alongside professional developers during projects, and have the chance to demonstrate their own designs to industry leaders. Students may nurture relationships that move out of the classroom and into their careers.

    The cost of a degree may vary from university to university. Contact the school of your choice to find out the details regarding tuition and registration schedules.

    A Master of Professional Studies in Art and Design can offer many career options to the graduate. Specific study may lead to a position in interior design for the healthcare industry.

The gaming industry seeks innovators who have the education and experience to bring their creations to the market.
