Graduate Programs

Art (MFA)

A Master of Fine Arts is geared towards 60 hours in any of the three following concentrations: Graphic Design, Photography, and Studio. Within these areas, students are involved in various disciplines: painting, traditional and digital photography, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media, multimedia, and graphic design. Placing emphasis on individual student work; each student is given a private studio where most graduate experience evolves. Students are encouraged to explore critical and conceptual issues, mainly in relation to their own work. Participation in individual critiques, intensive group critiques, and critical seminars is paramount, as well as one-on-one interaction between faculty and students.

Architecture (MArch)

Designed for those interested in becoming a licensed architect, a Master of Architecture revolves around a three-quarter sequential comprehensive studio design project. A Graduate Advisory Committee, appointed for each student, shall review the final project in a formal presentation and oral defense. Advancing to the next course, or graduation, requires a minimum grade of a “B” in each course of the sequence. New students will submit a Plan of Study for approval by the Graduate Program Coordinator within the first week of the Fall Quarter.
