A proposal is currently being created to convert the xdMFA concentration in Experience Design to a standalone MFA in Experience Design that will feature a hybrid approach to learning engagement. Students in the program will be both on-site and off-site during the program, with on-site meetings in Oxford, off-site meetings in locations across the United States, and online engagement both synchronously and asynchronously. By combining three different approaches for learning, the program promises to engage learners on a more personal level than online learning alone, while still offering convenience for students whose schedules may prevent regular attendance in a traditional program.
