Fine Arts Program - Art

Within the doctoral program in Fine Arts with a field of specialization in Art, Critical Studies and Artistic Practice, students examine diverse discourses in the visual arts, exploring their trans-disciplinary margins as well as their disciplinary strengths. The field of specialization in Art considers the political, economic, and aesthetic matrices in which the arts are embedded. It provides knowledge, intellectual strategies, and critical skills that facilitate scholarly achievement at the highest level, innovative contributions to knowledge, and a variety of professional activities in the arts. In addition to traditional topics, a professional problem or a formal internship can constitute the focus of a dissertation, subject to advisory committee approval.

Admission to the Fine Arts Doctoral Program involves applying to the Graduate School. Admission is based on meeting the requirements of the Graduate School as to prior academic record and GRE scores, obtaining a recommendation from the School of Art's doctoral admissions committee, and meeting the approval of the College of Visual and Performing Arts Graduate Committee.
