If you want to study art and design while pursuing other academic interests, you'll find no better place than the College of Art. It's an ideal environment for intellectual, creative, and personal growth. We offer all the experiences and resources of an art school and all the academic and extracurricular opportunities of an independent research university with a national reputation and diverse student body.

As you continue your professional journey as an artist, it's critical that you are surrounded with the people, the places, and the resources that represent artistic courage, challenge, exploration, and risk. Our program at the Graduate School of Art is such an arena. We believe that as your inquiry deepens and your vision emerges, your work should become highly individualized and extend beyond traditional boundaries. It's for these reasons that our MFA program is unique.
