It takes 5 years and special permission from the dean or something
They strongly advise not to double major with design majors but if you absolutely feel you want to and can do 5 years, then you can make your case and they'll have to approve it. I know because I wanted to major in both of those or illustration & animation but decided against it. Now I'm glad I didn't because the workload is ridiculous, especially in graphic design.
If you plan to major in Graphic Design at MassArt you are STRONGLY discouraged from attempting a double major. I actually don't believe you are even allowed to double major with Graphic Design because the work load is so extensive.
it is extremely frustrating... you are given very specific fine arts projects that rarely relate to any kind of design. Being an architecture major i felt like none of the foundation year teachers knew anything about design or how to guide a student that wasnt a painting, sculpture or illustration major.
At first it seems frustrating and there are still times where I'm like "why did I even need that?" but some of the things I learned, I've used for projects in my major when the medium was open. Form study is basically like sculpture related, Visual language 1 deals with photo basics/design/photoshop, Time deals with animation/video/software for it and bookmaking, drawing is self explanatory.

MassArt is a small school. The size of most classes here allows students and teachers to get to know each other and communicate on more personal level. The education in arts here is wonderful; however, MassArt lacks organization. Often they don't give students enough information, when it comes to registering for classes. A lot of times, even for freshman, people at the registrar's office just assume that the students know when and where to get their registration packets with all the requirements. Unfortunately, some students come here because they expect art school to be easy, but soon they realize that this is not the case. Students here probably have a bit more control than other schools over how hard it is, but that doesn't make it easy.
With all the advantages that art school can offer, the setbacks seem unimportant. MassArt is in a great location, which allows teachers to have classes at the Museum of Fine Arts. Student life here is fun and full or strange and very interesting art projects. Taking risks, thinking outside the box, and exploring the unknown is what students do and enjoy doing here.
