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 Noon on Saturday, November 5, 2016.
If you are making plans to visit, this is the time to do it!
·       Have light lunch
·       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 tacos 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 will arrange an info session at a later date. 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. 

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