  1. Hello All, I recently graduated from my undergraduate degree in Environmental Science in the US but after having worked in the field for a few months, I have found a new passion in Art History and conservation. I am looking to apply for a master's program, but it requires 4 credits in Art History classes, of which I have none. I am wondering if it is worth finding a post-bac program that would fulfill these 4 credits or if it would be better to take 4 individual classes at a college in order to fulfill them? I am not a US citizen so it would be almost impossible to fulfill these credits in a Community college in the US. Therefore, my options lie in the EU. As I am less familiar with schools around Europe, does anyone know of universities in Italy that allow for non-degree enrollment for getting credits from classes? Thank you! Federico
  2. Hi all, I know it's a vague question but anyone in the contemporary art history and theory DPhil programme in Oxford(http://www.rsa.ox.ac.uk/study/dphil/dphil-programme)? or has anyone heard of it? It seems a perfect program for me in many respects, but I'm not sure whether it's an outstanding one in this field. Thanks in advance!
  3. Hello! I've recently accepted an offer from the University at Buffalo for their MFA in Studio Art program. Anyone else accept any grad offers from UB? I'd love to get connected!
  4. MFA application opened up this month!!! Who's ready for 2018 freak-out forum?
  5. SoundArt?

    Sound Art?

    Hey just seeing if anyone else has applied to Columbia's Sound Art program. Or any sound art program. Haven't heard back yet!
  6. Hello! My name's Amira and I'm new here! I was wondering if we could share our art and get some feedback if wanted while we stress over applications My current goals and insta is below, nice to meet you all! I'm applying to Yale atm and hope to see some of you at Open House! @amirahb_art My work right now is centered on life energy, the history of it based around places and people and how it effects us and how to depict it visually!
  7. Hi everyone! I recently applied to grad school with the intention on focusing on the Italian Renaissance. I would love any book/documentary recommendations you may have!
  8. Hello, I'm am seeking a sharp, artsy, philosophically sophisticated, writting oriented person to help push a manuscript to potential. The project is a one act play dealing with lacanian psychoanalysis and continental philosophy. Any interest? It could be a paid position (I can afford $50 an hour for the right person) Thank you in advance! Moss
  9. Anyone know of any good PhD programs that are very interdisciplinary with Visual Culture & Anthro?
  10. Hi All, I'm pretty bad at navigating this site so forgive me if this thread already exists for 2018 but I've been looking at a 2015 edition of this thread and it seemed really helpful so I figured I'd start one for this year. I'm currently trying to decide between: Rutgers: Interdisciplinary. 2 years. full ride. possibility of GA positions worth 7k a semester. #20 in US News Rankings (don't know how they do these but...) University of Florida: Arts + Technology. 3 years. full ride. 22k/year teaching fellowship (20 hrs/wk). #82 in US News. USC: New Genres. 2 years. Waiting to hear back on funding. #69 in US News. Florida State University: Interdisciplinary. 3 years. full ride. 8k/year teaching fellowship (10 hrs/wk) #69 in US News. I'm currently pretty stuck between Rutgers and UF. It's hard to ignore Rutger's stature and proximity to NY but it's also hard to ignore 22k/year in Gainesville, Florida (this would feel like a fortune) and the added bonus of a 3 year program with lots of individual attention. Any input on either the specific programs or just best modes of thinking for identifying the right school would be super appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  11. Congratulation to all of you who have been accepted into your MFA program. My MFA journey will continue in Florence Italy. What are the things you are doing now to prepare you for the next 2-3 years? How do you go about your thesis research?
  12. This is my second round of applying for an MFA in painting. Last round I was offered 3 Post-Baccalaureate. I decided against a Post-Baccalaureate as it would cost me a year and money I rather spend towards an MFA. As a serious artist I will not stop making art because I was not accepted in an MFA program. My portfolio organically will improve and change as time passes. My questions is how many MFA program have you applied to and who offered you an Post-Baccalaureate? Did you decide to take them up on it? If not why not? After finishing your Post-Baccalaureate year did that university accept you into their MFA program? Mica, PAFA, LCAD and Tyler offered me Post-Baccalaureate
  13. I'm curious what are the backgrounds of students in either MIT or Harvard's philosophy PhD programs? Are there any students with non-philosophy, creative, or interdisciplinary backgrounds? MIT is consistently ranked as a top Feminist Philosophy program, however I did not see many students working in that field on their website. Thoughts on the climates of both of these departments?
  14. So all of the forums and columns I have found has been on what it is like to go back to school for law, med, or a social science none of them have focused on art. Anyone have any perspective on attending the same department of graduate program after working in the same field of study for a lengthy period of time?

    Aalto Arts MA

    Hello! Anyone knows what kind of interviews does Aalto Arts take? I have an interview for the Visual communication track coming up.
  16. Hey: I was hoping to get some help... I am interested in getting my Masters in Art History, and I am not sure if that is the right program for me. Is it possible for people to comment, to give me some advice? If it works better for you, you can message me through the blog/ forum. I have my Bachelors in Women's Studies, with minors in Philosophy and Sociology, and I am hoping to start a career as a Curator. I am not sure what that all entails, but I basically want to work in a Museum and teach people about art, that has some type of political significance, specifically art that pertains to feminism and gender issues. I not only want to teach people about the art (in a Museum setting), but I also want to understand the art, and its historical context. It would be a bonus if I can fix or restore the art as well.. Unless that is a separate career. All useful advice is appreciated. I am hoping to move to Boston, MA (Boston University), to get the degree - they have Museums out there as well, and New York is out of my price range in terms of the cost of living. I do not want to move to Philadelphia, since the only good school", that I am aware of out there is University of Philadelphia, and I do not have the GPA or interest in going to an Ivy League school. Thank you!
  17. Anyone just applied to arts administration programs last month? I really hope to know when the interview invitations would be sent (I 've got only 1 interview invitation so far)
  18. Hi! I have just applied to a few programs and I'm just looking for some advice to see if I have a shot I guess. Also looking for any schools in Europe besides University College London that have what I'm looking for. A little background on me, I got my Bachelor of Science Interior Design at Drexel University in Philly with a minor in Art History. I graduated with a 3.3 GPA and a pretty solid portfolio (my strong suit is definitely my renderings). For the past 2 years I have been teaching at the Community College of Philadelphia as an adjunct professor teaching AutoCAD and Intro to Architecture, Design and Construction. I kind of fell into teaching but absolutely love it and love the flexibility and freedom it gives me to be creative in my spare time. Obviously with this, I need to get my masters to continue teaching at the collegiate level. My goal is to go into Exhibit and Installation design so I have applied to a variety of different programs involving this field. Mostly, I want to get more digital design knowledge (I currently am fluent in CAD, Revit, Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop, Laser Cutting and a little sketchup) but I want to learn more about 3D printing, CNC Routing which entails Rhino and 3DS Max. Mostly, I am curious if I have a shot at some of these reach schools of mine. But also if anyone has any insight into some more European Schools that have what I'm looking for it would be greatly appreciated. 1. UCLA - Design Media Arts 2. California College of the Arts - MArch (accelerated) 3. Portland State University - MArch (accelerated hopefully) 4. Pratt Institute - Digital Imaging MFA 5. UWash (Seattle) - MS Arch in Design Computing 6. UCL - MArch Design for Performance & Interaction ????? Thinking about: 1. Sandberg Institute (Amsterdam) - Studio for Immediate Spaces 2. University of Applied Science Europe (Berlin) - Media Spaces 3. London South Bank University - Digital Architecture and Robotics 4. Piet Zwart Institute (Rotterdam) - Interior Architecture THANKS FOR READING & HELPING!
  19. Hi all, I have been on here before but it was a while back. I have bounced back and forth between two undergrad programs 100 miles apart and got most of the training in one school. 1. I have major sanity/safety/housing issues as I'm in that location now, and do not think I can stay here to complete 14 last credits. 2. The other school is the one I'd consider in the same state for an MFA in Studio Art if I were to choose to stay at all(I want to go to CAL State in a perfect world). *I'm in OR. Does anyone have experience with being just shy of a second BA for the new study subject and applying for grad schools? I literally am now out of undergrad aid as of this term. I may be able next fall to squeeze out two more courses that are very germane to my grad school goals/focus and the Cal State Modern/Contemporary Art History Req. Do grad schools look down on you or is it a significant limitation for me to almost have a second BA(so it's pretty nearly negligible). I mean as far as Cal State schools, I think it might be short 6-9 semester credits as compared to their requirements as an equivalency for and Art BA. It's beg. Ceramics and a couple of other odd ball non-studio courses if I remember right that their degree has as compared to my current hrs. standing in OR.
  20. Hi! I’m new in this forum so I hope this is the right section where to post this. Well, to put it “short”, I have a BA in Modern languages (taken in Italy) with a “minor” in art history and would like to pursue my studies in this field, going on to a MA and possibly even a PhD (I don’t know why but it really fascinates me to do any kind of research and maybe even to teach it). The problem is that during my bachelor I only took monographic courses which gave me no general view on art history: I took a 1850-1950 art history module, one about Caravaggio, another one on Flemish art (1350-1650), one on six 20th Century Italian artists and a general module on Aesthetics. Plus, I wrote my dissertation on August Strindberg and his role as a painter. In terms of credits, I would be perfectly admissible for a MA in Europe; yet, as I said before, I don’t have an overview on art history and haven’t done those readings an art history student would do during a bachelor. I feel so ignorant for this. So my final simple question is: given my background, what kind of readings should I do? Do you have any particular books/textbooks I should/must read? I have already started to read “A world history of art” by Hugh Honour, but I’m sure it won’t suffice Thanks a lot for those who will try to help me!

    Statements

    Hey everyone! Would anyone who has accepted to grad school be willing to post their statement? It would be insanely helpful to see some examples. Thanks!
  22. I studied as a Visual Art student during my undergrad, and focused mostly on fine arts, but now I'd like to attend for MFA in illustration, which is not so related in fine arts. Do I talk about it when I mention my undergrad major, or should I add some sentences briefly to inform the viewers why I changed interests? and is it ok to say I'm interested in both and want to give up on neither?
  23. Hi all! I graduated in '16 with a Bachelors in Science in Business and IT. When I was first looking at schools, I was interested in pursuing an art degree but my immigrant parents heavily influenced my decision to pursue a technical/business degree. Long story short, my grades were barely high enough to graduate. After graduation, I miraculously landed a job with a large software company and relocated cities. After some time, I moved to New York ( a city I always wanted to live in) and began painting while still working my job remotely. The experience of being surrounded by like minded indivuduals, galleries, and culture in NY has really changed my life. I have always drawn and written but never had the opportunity to pursue visual arts because I went to an engineering school. I've been painting intensely, teaching myself the technical aspects of drawing and painting, studying art history, going to gallery openings, sketching, trying new mediums, and working on building my portfolio. Since I live in NY, I've been lucky to get opportunities to work for art galleries and to assist painters. I have an evident natural talent (my mom and uncle both used to be a figurative painters in Russia). But, I feel very much an amateur and my natural talent is just not enough. I crave to get a comprehensive arts education, network with other artists, learn how to properly draw & paint, and get on-going critique. There is so much to learn and I want to become a master of my craft. I want to eventually get my MFA and either teach or become an artist (I know it's sounds like a pipe dream but I can't help but dream). I've never felt so passionate about anything as I do about painting, drawing, and expressing myself creatively. I really can't imagine doing anything else and I wanted to dedicate my life to the arts. I've contemplating getting a second BFA degree but then I discovered that there are post baccalaureate certifications in fine arts. And it seems to be perfect for someone like me! So the question is: - What are some notable post bacc art programs? (MICA and SAIC come to mind, but are there others? Preferably in NY?) - Should I consider getting a BFA? - Should I continue doing what I'm doing and just apply to residencies instead? I've also been learning Illustrator and digital arts. I was thinking maybe I can design in Illustrator from home to supplement my income and do some technical writing on the side. Basically, I'm 25 and I really don't want to spend anymore time doing IT work that I have no future in (even though it pays considerably well). Thoughts, opinions, comments, and suggestions extremely welcome!!!! Thank you!
  24. I'm looking for grad programs that are a mix of art/design (particularly animation) and CS but mainly focused on research – does anyone have any suggestions? A perfect example would be something like Texas A&M's MS-Viz Curriculum. Help would be greatly appreciated.
