We are excited to introduce sixteen new graduate students to the School community. The School of Art + Art History + Design officially welcomed this year’s new staff, faculty and incoming class of graduate students to their peers and colleagues at our annual BBQ Welcome Back reception on the first day of Autumn quarter.

Hailing from all corners of the world - Georgia (the country), Korea, Iran, China, and the U.S. – these students are pursuing a degree in one of the School’s graduate programs: Master of Fine Arts (MFA), Master of Art in Art History (MA), Art History Doctorate (PhD), or Master of Design (MDes).

A few shared with us more about their artistic and academic backgrounds, interests, and aspirations.  Click on their names under People Involved at the bottom of the post to see their profiles.
