Postbaccalaureate Program in Studio Art
Brandeis University's Postbaccalaureate Program in Studio Art is designed for students with a bachelor's degree who are interested in extending their experience in studio art. The program is a one- or two-year residency program that focuses on the disciplines of painting and sculpture. The structure emphasizes independent work with assistance achieved through critical interaction with faculty and visiting artists. Students can prepare portfolios for admission to graduate school, or achieve the self-sufficiency necessary for continued studio work outside an academic environment.
