PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION ARRANGEMENT
Approximately 50 linear feet Arranged chronologically by year of completion/graduation and then alphabetically by last name of the student within each year.
Founded in 1950, the Graphic Design Program at the Yale University School of Art is a well respected program training designers in technical and theoretical issues. The two year course of study requires students to build a coherent, investigative, and experimental body of work. The program culminates in a thesis project in which the student creates a final document in support of a long-term, multi-faceted research project.
The collection consists of over 600 individual Master of Fine Arts theses from 1951 to the present. The theses are most often in the book format, but also include more experimental formats. Individual records for the theses are also available in Orbis.
Gift of the artists.
