Animation MFA Program Suspension 

The MFA program in the School of Art is currently going through a period of growth and reorganization which has presented some challenges. Because of this, the Graduate Committee had to make a difficult decision and has decided to suspend admissions into the Visual Arts/Animation MFA program until further notice. This will allow us to continue providing students with exceptional learning experiences and opportunities in our other MFA concentrations.
