Graduate Degrees

Empower Yourself

As a graduate student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), you will focus, study intensively, and learn from some of the most renowned faculty in the world. You will develop professional friendships and mentor relationships that will influence you for decades to come. You will have the opportunity to cross boundaries between disciplines. A course in photography could help you to see architecture more clearly. Or an art history seminar could expose you to the alternative peer perspectives of an artist, curator, or therapist. What will this type of education prepare you to do? Because we provide you with a context, awareness, and understanding much greater than any single-discipline approach could provide, your work will grow, your ability to adapt and succeed in today’s world will be confirmed, and you will become a fuller person for the experience.
