In addition to the general admission requirements, students must have a portfolio review. Students with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts are exempt from this requirement. Arrangements for the portfolio review can be made in the Office of Enrollment Management. Students must have appropriate prerequisites for any fine arts studio courses taken at the graduate level.
