Information Sessions

The Graduate Information Sessions will provide prospective students with a unique opportunity to meet with the Chair, faculty, department staff, current students, and alumni.

As you are preparing your application for graduate study in our department, we know you have many questions and concerns. We would like to help you edit your work for a positive viewing by our Review Committee. You want to put your best work in front of us. Let us help you organize it. If you plan on attending one of our Info Sessions, please come prepared with a portfolio sample of your current or most achieved images, whether video or photography.
