At Stevenson University’s School of Design, we’ll help you learn more about your design field of interest and prepare you to meet the real-world challenges that today’s creative industries, businesses, and organizations face.

No matter what field of design you're interested in, the School of Design will give you a strong framework on which you can build a successful career. You’ll develop your individual voice and vision by applying what you learn in the classroom to internships that connect you with professionals in your chosen field. You'll also benefit from our new location on the Owings Mills North Campus, a facility with state-of-the-art equipment and settings for you to hone your skills. Our goal is for you to graduate as an emerging, practicing professional who’s prepared to hit the ground running.

“In small classes, expert faculty get to know students' individual goals and aspirations so they may guide them in the direction of their dreams while providing the skills and foundations necessary to keep their feet planted firmly on the ground,” says Dean Hostalka, MFA, Dean of Stevenson’s School of Design.
