Overview
The Department of Art and Design offers graduate programs of study in art and design, and art education. The Master of Arts in Art is a 30-credit program with two areas of specialization: Studio Art and Design Entrepreneurship + Innovation.

The Master of Fine Arts in Art is a 60-credit program concentrated in one or more areas of studio art (see http://uwm.edu/arts/art-and-design/graduate/ for more information). It is designed for the student who desires further graduate training as a professional artist or training as an artist-teacher in art schools and universities.

Full-time students normally complete the MA degree within 4 semesters, and the MFA degree within 6 semesters.

The Master of Science (M.S.) in Art Education is a 30-credit program with advanced work in art education and the studio arts. The M.S. with a major in art education offers two separate program options. Both options require applicants to have completed a bachelor’s degree in the visual arts or a related field, and to be admitted to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Graduate School. Additional background requirements depend on the option the applicant intends to pursue, as follows:
  • Pre K-12 Art Education Option is designed to enhance the expertise of practicing teachers. The program combines theory, practice, and research in an effort to develop leaders as teachers-artists-researchers in the field.
  • Community-Based Art Education Option is designed for those who desire careers as educators in community art programs, including museums. The program looks at theories and practices that have impacted community-based art education.
The Department’s facilities and services include fully equipped studios housed in the Kenilworth Square East building and the main campus Art Building.

The Peck School of the Arts’ Institute of Visual Art (INOVA) provides a year-round schedule of exhibitions, with galleries that are housed in the Kenilworth Square East building, a research facility approximately one mile from campus. The Department of Art and Design offers a schedule of workshops and special lectures each year. In addition, graduate student studios are located in the Kenilworth Square East building.

Frederick R. Layton Fellowships are awarded each year to incoming and continuing graduate students, depending on funding. Information and application forms may be obtained at: http://uwm.edu/arts/art-and-design/graduate/.

A limited number of Teaching Assistantships and Project Assistantships are offered through the Department of Art and Design. Information and application forms may be obtained at: http://uwm.edu/arts/art-and-design/graduate/.

Students applying for admission to the three graduate programs in Art and Design, should note these application deadlines:
  • For Fall admission to the MA and MFAgraduate programs in Art, the Graduate School recommends completing the online application one year in advance of intended enrollment (check http://uwm.edu/arts/art-and-design/graduate/ for more specific information) with portfolios and letters of recommendation uploaded to the Panthera application by February 1. If applying for university fellowships, the application is due by December 10. Applications are accepted for Fall admission only.
  • For admission to the M.S. graduate program in Art Education, the Graduate School recommends completing the online application one year in advance of the semester in which one intends to enroll, and no later than three months prior to intended enrollment, with portfolio, writing sample and letters of recommendation due in the Panthera application three months prior to intended enrollment.

Advising
Upon admission, the Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Art & Design, in consultation with the Graduate Faculty, will assign the incoming graduate student to a First Year Advisory Team. The head Advisor will contact the student and the Advisory Team at the beginning of the student’s first semester to arrange a schedule for meetings to discuss course enrollment and the first year studio research agenda.

By the end of the student’s second semester in the program, the student must select a Major Professor, and in consultation with the Major Professor, assemble his or her Graduate Thesis Committee. The committee consists of three or more members (usually not larger than four). At least three members must be graduate faculty, and at least two must be from the Department of Art & Design. At least one member of the committee must be a faculty member in the student’s area of focus. If a student desires, the fourth member of the committee may be from outside the university.

A student who wishes to change his/her designated area of focus must first apply and be accepted into the new focus. The student would make this decision in consultation with his or her Thesis Committee and the Director of Graduate Studies. If the student is accepted into the new area of focus, he or she will assemble a new Thesis Committee and select a new Major Professor, if necessary.

If the student’s major professor takes a leave of absence or leaves the University, the student should contact the Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Art and Design for advice in selecting a new major professor, and notify the Director of subsequent changes to the student’s committee.

Credits and Courses
Minimum degree requirement is 30 graduate credits, 24 of which must be taken in Art and Design, 3 of which must be taken in Art History, and 3 of which can be graduate-level coursework in a discipline related to the student’s research interests.
