MDP faculty harken from the fields of media design, anthropology, art, film, architecture, cultural theory, computer science, interaction design, product design, robotics, cultural analytics, and more.
Our core faculty are not only award-winning experts in their fields, they are innovative educators: they provide students with the right mix of structure and open-endedness to push their work in new directions.
Our adjunct faculty are drawn largely from Southern California’s exciting cultural and scientific communities. But we also have faculty from around the world who teach remotely or during intensive visits. The Wind Tunnel Graduate Center for Critical Practice brings a constant flow of leading thinkers into direct contact with students, from corporate trendsetters to art world outliers.
