Students at Mason have long benefitted from the University’s proximity to the vibrant D.C. Graphic Design community. Home to hundreds of design and marketing firms, publications, associations and a large high-tech sector, a majority of Mason Graphic Design students have found new positions or promotions while still in the program. Mason students benefit from strong connections to that community through faculty who are both working professionals and deeply engaged in the D.C. design scene.
