The UW Art department does not have a graduate program, but we have been very successful in sending senior studio art students to competitive art MFA programs throughout the country. One of the most successful programs we have is the post baccalaureate. Senior graduating students can apply for a post baccalaureate for the year following graduation. Each post bach student is given a studio to work in and in return they are asked to assist/help with studio maintenance and be an aid in beginning classes, almost like a TA. All students who do take on the post baccalaureate are very successful in their applications to graduate school because this opportunity allows them the time to refine and see real progress within their personal portfolio work.
