The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) Degree in Print Paper Book

To be a print paper book major is to focus not only on the image itself but also on how it's made, how often, and on what.

This program is all about exploring process, and MCAD provides the technology for discovery: digital, intaglio, lithography, monotype, Eastern and Western papermaking, artists' books—you name it, we have it.

Print paper book is a major offered in the four-year BFA degree program. Our BFA curriculum is rooted by Core Four—foundation courses that enhance students' professional development.
