From the time you arrive on campus, you will be encouraged to think about how your passions and talents will shape life after art school—you’ll hear from visiting artists in the classroom, meet with advisors to chart your course of study, and attend workshops with a full range of creative professionals.
We also place great value on ensuring that you spend time outside of the classroom, gaining experiences that will nurture your creative growth. We have a six-credit off-campus study requirement that may be fulfilled by taking part in the Cooperative Education Internship Program (Co-op), tailored specifically to your interests.
Our services are available to all degree-seeking students and alumni. Register online for an appointment to discuss your career questions. Current students are also welcome to come in for walk-in appointments, Mondays through Fridays from 12:00–1:00 p.m.
