Advertising & Digital Design BFA at FIT (A&DD)
Integration of Concept, Design, Copy, and Technology
The Advertising and Digital Design BFA program prepares students for advertising and design in the digital age. You’ll learn how to create work that sparks conversations and uses storytelling and engagement to shape culture, rather than just reflect it.
FIT is a pioneer in integrating advertising and digital design. In fact, this was the first BFA program in the world to create specialized digital design courses such as Kinetic Typography, User Experience Design, Typography for Digital Content Design, and Digital Product Design. Our industry-inspired curriculum includes Concept Development, Strategic Planning, Art Direction, Design, Copywriting, Creative Technology, and an industry-related internship. Our curriculum also allows students to specialize in Branding, Copywriting, or Social Media—with elective credits. For more information, please click here visit our official page at fitnyc.edu
