Fall ’22 Info Session

Our INFO SESSION is the perfect event for those of you who would like more detailed information on the program. Come join Nathan Fox, Chair of MFA Visual Narrative, along with faculty members, students, and alumni for an informal presentation. This event is designed to help potential students learn about our curriculum, our philosophy and our approach to visual storytelling. Discover all that the evolutionary low-residency program has to offer.

RSVP link: November 9th, 6:30-8PM

National Graduate Portfolio Days

We’ll also be participating this year, as usual. Because we are a media-agnostic MFA, we are open to viewing illustrated books, film, animation, comics, game design, and any other visual medium. Nathan Fox (Department Chair) will be available to view your work.

October 15th 12-4PM ET (in-person with Nathan Fox in New York City)
October 22nd 10-2 CDT ( in-person with Nathan Fox in Chicago)
