MFA in Printmaking
The graduate printmaking program focuses on the refinement of a personal aesthetic and conceptual approach to the medium. Graduate students in printmaking are encouraged to master technical and materials application while the major emphasis turns toward creative exploration and individual expression.

The printmaking studios are well equipped for specialized and cross-disciplinary focus in all of the traditional processes including woodcut, metal-plate intaglio, screen printing, lithography, and alternative process photo methods. Hand-worked and photographically-developed approaches are instructed in all media and digitally-produced images are fully explored.
