Department of Art and Art History Graduate Admissions

Plan a Campus Visit

Visits or phone conversations with the Graduate Advisor, Graduate Coordinator, and/or any faculty members are not admission interviews. Any such conversations will familiarize prospective students with our facilities and the mechanics of the program, but are not part of the admission decision process.

Fall Semester Open House

(Prospective Students Only)

We invite you to join us at the open house for prospective students at 10:30 am on Saturday, October 31, 2015.
If you are making plans to visit, this is the time to do it!
·       Have brunch
·       Meet current grads and studio faculty from all 5 areas
·       See student work
·       Get a tour of the studios and facilities
·       Ask every question your heart desires!
We will start with brunch and a chance to mingle with faculty and grads. Then we will move into an information session on the program and the application process, then on to a question and answer session with faculty and current grads. We will then break up into groups to tour the facilities and view student work.

If there is no way you can make the open house date, we have an Info Session on Monday, November 16. This visit will not include grads, faculty area representatives, or student work. You will meet with the Graduate Advisor and the Graduate Coordinator who will tour you through the facilities and talk about the program in addition to answering your questions. The info session will last from mid-morning until about noon.

To reserve your spot, visit the online registration page at least three business days in advance of one of those dates. Appointment time(s) for your Monday visit will be confirmed by email the Friday before your arrival.

Prospective students interested in visiting the program are strongly encouraged to attend the Open House and if not, then one of the Info Sessions.

If none of those dates are possible, prospective students may request an appointment first with the Graduate Advisor, Amy Hauft. Professor Hauft may be available to meet with prospective students from Sept 1 to the end of November on Mondays and Fridays, only. If that cannot be scheduled, make an appointment with the Graduate Coordinator.
