Graduate Study

The graduate program of the Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design offers three degree programs at the Masters level:

    • Master of Arts in Art History

    • Master of Art Education

    • Master of Fine Arts in Studio

The Master of Fine Arts studio program offers concentrations in Ceramics, Drawing and Painting, Printmaking, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Photography, Sculpture, and Textiles.

The overarching goal of the graduate program is to offer rigorous, scholarly, and studio-based activities that challenge and foster conceptual, technical, and intellectual development. Our programs offer a professional training ground for artists, designers, art historians, and art teachers. These full time degree programs encourage excellence through experimentation, cross-disciplinary pursuits, and critical analyses of existing ideas about art, art teaching, and art history. The programs foster critical thinking and dynamic artistic production within an interdisciplinary environment.

Application deadlines for MFA Studio, MAEd, and MA Art History is February 1, 2021.
