  1. Has anyone heard back from MA programs in critical/visual and/or curatorial studies for Fall 2021? I applied to Columbia (MODA), SAIC, and CCS Bard and I’m super anxious about... everything— potential interviews, admissions decisions, program funding, etc. Anyone in the same boat?? Any insights??
  2. Hi all, Not a lot going on in terms of film studies discussion, and I know it's early, but I'm interested in sharing information before outcomes (so that hopefully those outcomes themselves will be better). I've been disheartened with university websites, which really don't give much sense of a program's culture or a department climate, nor do they always spell out funding package information or departmental theoretical approaches. Additionally, I don't know a lot about what all of these cities are like. I'm considering the following programs: University of Pittsburgh UC Berkeley University of Toronto Northwestern Wisconsin UCLA USC University of Washington UChicago Concordia Brown MCM If you are a current/former students of these programs/just happen to have engaged with them, I'd love to hear from you. Also: Does anyone know anything about the University of Oregon English with a Structured Emphasis in Film Studies program? / Eugene in general? Is this worth looking seriously at? Overall, I hope we can find a bit of a community here together to make applications less isolating than they already are!
  3. Hi all! I am in my last year of my undergraduate and am majoring in Film and Screen Studies (minoring in Critical Race and Ethnicity Studies and Urban Studies). Right now I am feeling pretty lost in searching for a masters program. I was interested in Columbia at first but have read that a lot of classes are undergrad and it is not very contemporary. I was wondering if anyone would like to share their experiences they have had in a similar program/if anyone has recommendations. A lot of film programs are MFA and production based whereas I am more interested in the studies/theory aspect of it. I had initially wanted to stay in the same location (NYC) but it seems that the only two options are Columbia and NYU (which both known for their lack of funding). I am open to anything and would love to hear your experiences!

  5. Hi everyone, I was recently granted with one of the most prestigious fellowships in my country (Spain) to pursue graduate studies in the USA / Canada. This means I will be fully funded for two years and I have no financial restrictions for choosing a graduate program. I'm currently working on my applications and still doing research on different possibilities. Some questions have arisen and because I am unfamiliar with many aspects of the US graduate education system I thought I can find some answers by sharing them with you. I have a background in Literary Studies and a BA in Fine Arts, and my focus has primarily been on visual culture, visuality, media / technology, critical theory and the arts. My initial plan is to pursue a terminal MA program in Art History (with an interdisciplinary approach) or in Visual and Critical Studies. However, my intention is to pursue a PhD afterwards, so I want to make sure the MA has an academic approach that would take me in the direction of doctoral studies. As I do my research on different programs, I get the feeling that in the United States most terminal MA programs are more professional-oriented thus not so rigorous academic-wise (am I right or is it just a very biased feeling?). This has raised the question: Which MA programs in Art History / Visual Studies are out there that would take me into a very good PhD program? Or: Should I try to go directly into a PhD? Some MA programs that are in my radar: - SAIC (MA in Visual and Critical Studies ) - Columbia (MODA) - Bard Graduate Center (MA in Decorative Arts, Design History and Material Culture). - CALARTS (MA Aesthetics and Politics). - SVA (MA Critical Theory and the Arts) ((does anyone have an opinion on this program?)) Or more “traditional” MA programs in Art History, in Columbia or NYU (would a program like this allow me to have an interdisciplinary approach?). OR PhD programs: - Rochester (PhD Visual and Cultural Studies) - U. Chicago (PhD Art History) - UC Irving (PhD in Visual Studies) - CUNY (PhD Art History) Would any of those MA Programs make sense in order to become involved in doctoral studies afterwards? Do you know of any other MA degrees that might be worth consider? Thank you very much!!
  6. Does anyone have info on or experience with this (apparently new) program? I've been looking primarily at PhD programs in visual studies, but would love to consider a master's if funding can be found--and it looks like assistantships are available here, but I'm not sure how widely. Any thoughts on this program would be appreciated!
  7. Hey guys! New to the boards! I m currently an MA student looking to apply for Ph.D. programs fro the 2018/2019 academic year. I am currently getting an MA in Art History focusing on critical theory, mostly relating to the exclusion of animation from the art historical canon. I am hoping to continue this project and working with animation, particularly Disney, in a Ph.D program, but I am having trouble with programs that may be open to this. I have been looking at visual studies programs as well, which may be more flexible with my desired area of study. I just have no idea where to start, what programs would even potentially be a good fit for me, and if there are academics out there that may be a good fit for an advisor. Any ideas would be super helpful! Thanks!
  8. Hey all! I have not yet heard from UCI's visual studies program. I am not sure what to expect, I saw on the results page 2 people were accepted. This is my first time applying to phd programs so I am lost as to what the normal wait time is.
  9. anybody applying to Visual Studies Santa Cruz? News? interview? anything??
  10. Hi, I'm new here and was hoping to get some feedback on good fits for someone interested in media studies, visuality, and theory. In particular, I'm looking for MA or PhD programs and faculty that share my interests in the body, visuality, subjectivity, and desire. In terms of approaches, I tend to gravitate toward queer theory (Foucault primarily), aesthetics ( interested in applying Heideggerian notions of worlding to contemporary transnational art), and psychoanalysis. I know there are some obvious contenders out there (NYU, Brown, Duke), but I'm a bit worried because my grades aren't superb and my otherwise spotless GRE scores are lacking in math (possibly not relevant), though I can say with reasonable confidence that my recs and statements will be solid. I also have connections to people in and affiliated with King's College London's Film department and NYU's MCC department, respectively. But, at the end of the day, my goal is to get into a good program and get funding without being stranded in the middle of nowhere (this is for my own mental and emotional well-being more than it is mere nitpicking). Is there any hope of balancing all this? What are my options? Thanks!
  11. Hello there! reaching out to see if anyone in studying Critical Theory (frankfurt school)! I'd like to reach out to other programs and share conferences, etc. I'd like to go big with this! Very excited.
  12. For future reference, does anyone know which Visual Studies programs are known for providing the best funding? I understand PhD programs are more likely to provide a full ride, but are there programs with good funding for MAs as well? UBuffalo, I believe, but not sure any others.
  13. Hi all, I have a few programs I'm applying to that don't fit neatly into any other category so I made one up. They include Emory's ILA program, UC-Irvine's Visual Studies program, Berkeley's Performance Studies, and Duke's Literature Program (I know, I know, check Literature. But I think Duke's program is a little bit unique). Anyone else applying to interdisciplinary programs for Fall 2012 and waiting to hear back?
