Design for Social Innovation at SVA is an MFA program that focused on social impact design. SVA is short or the School of Visual Art, which is based in New York City.
It's hard to believe but the program is the first of its kind. "It was created as a much-needed path for designers who want to work at a strategic level within business, government and the social sector to solve the major challenges humanity faces, and to offer non-designers an opportunity to learn to use design to create positive impact," they write on their website.
The faculty have a wide range of backgrounds and the students tend to reflect that.
