The SDSU Furniture Design and Woodworking program has a long legacy of balancing technical process and knowledge with creative development and conceptual exploration. We focus on process, discourse, fun, and function, as well as experimentation in both traditional and contemporary technologies.

Our undergraduate program is a BA in Applied Design, in which students take some of all of the craft media, focusing in on one or the other, as they move through the program. Our MFA program is world renowned, and many of those teaching in programs across the US, running independent companies, and showing in top galleries, are alumnus of SDSU. From the director of Penland, Mia Hall, to the head of Maine college of Art’s Furniture program, Matt Hutton, SDSU has provided fertile ground for creative exploration and technical learning for generations.

Beginning with Wendy Maruyama, in the late 1980’s, this program has been a prime example of how technical education can smoothly blend with creative license and conceptual art to create some of the most unique and beautiful objects in the field. Now, Associate Professors Adam Manley and Matthew Hebert, along with graduate teaching assistants and lecturers, carry that torch, while bringing in new technologies and facilities, such as a new digital fabrication lab, which houses a wide range of fabrication tools and opens up the doors for experimentation in contemporary manufacturing techniques, all with an eye towards one of a kind art and design production.
SDSU is also host to a renowned residency program, which provides students to a rotating cast of artists at the top of the field, working alongside them in the space, and inspiring students by exemplifying the practice of an artist at work. SDSU is located in beautiful San Diego California, where the sunsets are always amazing, and the croquet matches never disappoint.
