Our graduate program is rigorous and expansive, encouraging individual exploration in a dynamic community.
Characterized by a close working relationship with professors, students engage in a rich exchange of ideas with fellow classmates, and a culture of experimentation and innovation.
Our program is not media-specific. Faculty encourage cross-discipline exploration and all facilities are available to students to discover new and exciting possibilities to express their ideas.
According to our recent survey, alumni pursue a wide range of careers across the creative economy. 90% of alumni are professional artists after graduation. In addition, most teach at the college-level. Other former students are arts administrators, curators and directors in museums, galleries and nonprofit organizations.
