MA/MFA Coordinated Degree, 2018

“The possibilities and opportunities offered through this program have allowed me to expand as an artist and professional. My professors know me by name, and I can work and research in my studio 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”

As a graduate art student, Joanna had the opportunity to work with local elementary school students on an art installation on their campus titled “Bridge: Compassion.”

Study in and have 24/7 access to the 30,000-square-foot art complex which features the latest audio and digital technology, as well as dedicated studio space for every studio art discipline.

Art Beyond the Classroom

Network and gain experience outside the classroom with the Studio Art and Art History Association, which is the student organization that coordinates art exhibitions and sales, guest artist and scholar lectures, and the annual Art History Student Research Symposium. Or be a part of the UT Tyler Sculpture Conference, which brings together visiting sculptors with students, local architects and designers.
