Graduate Program Overview
The graduate program in Studio Art provides a challenging and diverse environment. Meaningful art keeps changing and evolving. In our program, we encourage students to explore a broad range of creative expressions and studio practices while working in-depth and along the edges of discrete but still vital traditions, as well as bridging them and traversing boundaries. Additionally, we want our students to be able to think and talk and write about their maturing art; not just to sound good, but also to enhance their studio practice.
