Information For Postgraduates - UCLA
Headed by a faculty of internationally recognized artists and complimented by a roster of distinguished visiting lecturers, the Department of Art at UCLA is committed to professional art training within the context of a great liberal arts university. Within each area of specialization, encouragement is given to explore a wide range of media. Students choose from a diverse group of electives and can take classes in other departments within and outside the School of the Arts and Architecture. Regular interaction between the studio and the classroom creates a close-knit intellectual community that furthers creative growth and critical thinking.
All of the department's courses aim to instill an understanding of and appreciation for the visual arts and their contributions to the history of cultural development and change. Current critical and theoretical thought is the focus of the Graduate Seminar, and a wide range of contemporary issues are addressed in the Visiting Artists Lecture Series. The low faculty-student ratio facilitates regular one-on-one instruction as well as group critique, and peer review is an integral component of the program.
