The graduate programs in the College of Fine Arts are considered among the very best in the country. Indeed, several programs are considered the “best!” The deserved reputations of these discrete programs are based largely on the excellent graduate faculty, which consists of highly trained artists and educators of national stature. We have designed all graduate programs, at the professional level, to prepare students to compete aggressively in their chosen fields. Thanks to an excellent artist-in-residence program, our students are exposed to, and work with, professionals who regularly visit the college. Certain faculty members of the programs have developed relationships with the best professional outlets in their areas, allowing students to work and interact with professionals prior to graduation.
The College of Fine Arts is committed to excellence in the classroom in conjunction with practical experience, which hones the skills and talents of its students. An excellent faculty, excellent facilities, excellent connections to the professions, and excellent students all contribute to a fast-growing college that can enhance careers and help dreams become realities.
