M.A. in Industrial Arts
The Bachelor of Arts is an interdisciplinary program which provides the student with an opportunity to develop an individualized course of study in the areas of design, visual communications design, technology, and industrial and technology education. Under the guidance of a DAI adviser, each student develops a major program including a departmental colloquium; a minimum of 21-22 units of DAI core courses; a 24-unit minimum technology-related area; and support courses. The individual program can be based upon a technical concentration acquired in a community college or an equivalent technical program to be completed during the degree work at San Francisco State University.
Students who are considering teaching Industrial and Technology Education (Industrial Arts) should consult a Design and Industry adviser before planning their majors. Specific courses and a competency assessment are required for admission to the credential program in this area.
The Bachelor of Arts in Industrial Arts with Concentration in Product Design and Development is another option for students who intend to focus their studies in product-oriented design. The 55-unit concentration mainly deals with the proliferation of industrial goods and services which incorporate the study of the nature and processing of materials, marketing, and aesthetics.
The Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology (BSIT) is a management-oriented technical curricula built upon a program of studies drawn from the Departments of Design and Industry, Business Analysis and Computing Systems, Mathematics, and Management. The Bachelor of Science prepares students for technical leadership responsibilities with a broad variety for industries including manufacturing, communication, transportation, and utility services. Graduates in the field of industrial technology are prepared to function as technical managers in industry. Preparation in the BSIT requires the student to choose an emphasis in product development and manufacturing technology, graphic communication technology, or electronics technology.
The Bachelor of Vocational Education degree option in the department is governed by Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations and legislation known as the Swan Bill. The BVE curriculum is an individualized program, designed to develop the necessary competencies of a vocational teacher. All components of the program are intended to provide the vocational teacher with the concepts behind organization, management, and evaluation skills necessary to implement and supervise a planned program of vocational education. A sequence of course work is designed by advisement in the student's teaching area of specialization.
The Master of Arts in Industrial Arts offers two programs--one for the industry professional and one for the public school teacher. The two programs have the same general requirements but differ in courses taken and goals pursued. Students with a wide range of backgrounds work with a graduate adviser to design M.A. programs which meet their career goals. The student who already has an interdisciplinary B.A., usually continues deeper into the original B.A. disciplines. The student who enters with a single subject B.A., perhaps from another university, frequently looks toward specific employment and adds course work in a second discipline.
The Minor in Industrial Arts is designed to provide non-major undergraduates with a broad exposure to industry and technology. Students will be able to obtain professional and technical skills needed for entry-level employment in a wide range of industrial occupations.
The department has also maintained a pool of lecture faculty to provide additional strength in many instructional areas. Their experiences and involvement with industry and technology have been valuable assets to the program. Faculty members in the department are constantly participating in short courses, workshops, and conferences to upgrade themselves in the new and changing technologies. Furthermore, faculty is heavily involved with applied technical research and/or design and development activities for the purpose of instructional improvement, technical advancement, and professional contribution.

The department offers the Master of Arts in Industrial Arts. This curriculum provides students with the opportunity to:
Level One: Students must complete a department approved essay examination; students who demonstrate by examination that they need additional work writing American English will be referred to appropriate resources on campus and additional course work in the English area will be added to their Graduate Approved Program unit total upon consultation and in coordination with the DAI department graduate coordinator. Level Two: Students can meet this requirement by the successful completion of the written phase of the culminating experience work that is part of either the Creative Work Project (DAI 894), or the Master's Thesis (DAI 898).
NOTE: It is Department of Design and Industry policy that a student must submit and have a comprehensive written proposal approved at the department level within one semester prior to enrolling in either the DAI 894, Creative Work Project, or DAI 898, Master's Thesis.
