MFA First Year Advisor
From Julie: "A good MFA program encourages, questions, and pushes you a tad bit beyond where you think your limits are. We believe that research, critical thinking, and vibrant discourse are essential to make your voice clear, because we want your particular voice to infuse your visual outcomes."
