Global Arts and Cultures
The graduate application deadline is January 5.
Applicants interested in financial aid should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) .
Applications for 2023–24 are available now .
Initially you need to provide unofficial transcripts of all undergraduate and/or graduate study indicating satisfactory completion, or evidence of anticipated completion, of an undergraduate degree program from an accredited college or university. You can upload your unofficial transcripts via the RISD Applicant Portal. If your academic credentials are prepared in a language other than English, they must be translated into English by an approved translator before submitting. Enrolling students will be required to submit official transcripts later.
Statement of purpose
Applicants to the master’s program in Global Arts and Cultures must submit an academic statement of purpose. Since the object of your statement is to introduce yourself to the Admissions Committee as a thinker, scholar and writer, you should address in detail your intellectual interests and proposed topic(s) of graduate study. Be as specific as possible in describing your prior college-level experience in areas encompassed by Global Arts and Cultures, indicating how this work has contributed to your professional and personal goals in pursuing a master’s degree. Your statement should also reflect your understanding of the contours and demands of graduate study in Global Arts and Cultures at RISD.
Applicants to the master’s program in Global Arts and Cultures are required to submit a writing sample. This writing sample should represent your strongest critical and/or analytical writing on a topic clearly related to Global Arts and Cultures.
Please indicate if your writing sample is excerpted from a longer work. If it is, please make sure it forms a coherent argument and is framed such that the Admissions Committee understands its function as part of a longer work.
Letters of recommendation
Applicants are required to submit three letters of recommendation. These letters should be written by teachers or other professionals who have firsthand knowledge of your academic achievements and can comment on your potential for graduate study. You may invite your recommenders to upload their letters through your Applicant Portal. If the people writing letters of recommendation are unable to submit using this method, their letters may be emailed to [email protected] or mailed to the Graduate Admissions Office, Two College Street, Providence, RI 02903 USA.
Graduate Record Examination
Results from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) are optional.
English as a second language
All applicants who speak English as a second language (including US citizens) must submit results from either the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) , IELTS (International English Language Testing System) or Duolingo (an online English test).
Since proficiency in English is a prerequisite for acceptance, applicants must attain an acceptable score on either test. RISD requires a minimum result of 93 on the TOEFL, 6.5 on IELTS or 115 on Duolingo. The language test requirement may be waived for applicants who are enrolled in an institution where English is the language of instruction.
Plan to take the TOEFL or IELTS well in advance of the application deadline since it may take three weeks for your scores to be sent to RISD by the test agency. For Duolingo, it may take up to four days before RISD receives test results.
To be eligible for admission for the coming academic year, you must complete your undergraduate bachelor’s degree program at an accredited college or university prior to enrollment.
Who should apply
GAC is ideal for driven and inquisitive students with backgrounds in the liberal arts or in art and design fields, and who have a strong interest in critical contemporary issues and interdisciplinary research. An emphasis on self-directed research will inspire agile thinkers who want to further understand the complexity of the arts and cultural production on a global and historical scale. Individuals with professional backgrounds in related fields will also benefit from the rigorous intellectual grounding offered through the program.

The Screenwriting program challenges students to write well-structured stories inhabited by vivid, compelling characters. The program explores the elements of character, dialogue, scene, setting, texture, style and tone.
The two-year Master of Fine Arts degree program allows students to focus on either feature film or television writing, with opportunities to explore workshops in both areas. Throughout their studies, students are guided by faculty members actively involved in the film, television, and new media sectors, benefiting from their extensive professional experience. We challenge our students to succeed through risking failure, to engage with other art forms in order to better understand the art of screenwriting, to cultivate a curiosity in global art, to develop critical thinking skills to aid in the analysis of their scripts, and to provide an ethical foundation in building a career path.
Admission to the Screenwriting program does not guarantee specific workshop placements each quarter. All workshops and classes require program consent for enrollment.
Established in 1965, the UCLA TFT Screenwriting program has provided a strong foundation for hundreds of alumni, including Ana Lily Amirpour ( A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night ), Dustin Lance Black ( Milk ), Steven Canals ( Pose ), Francis Ford Coppola ( The Godfather ), Laeta Kalogridis ( Shutter Island , Altered Carbon ) David Koepp ( Spider Man ), Josefina Lopez ( Real Women Have Curves ), Alexander Payne ( Nebraska ), David S. Ward ( The Sting ), Eric Roth ( Forrest Gump ) and Caroline Williams ( Miss/Guided ).
Students build their thesis portfolio by concentrating either on feature film or television writing, though students are encouraged to, and often do take, workshops in both concentrations. The program is designed so that students may fulfill their thesis requirements within their tracks in five quarters, leaving the student space within which to pursue screenwriting workshops outside of their tracks if they wish to do so.
The Screenwriting program has the following time-to-degree requirement: A minimum of six quarters; maximum of seven quarters. The minimum total units required to graduate is 72 units (18 courses). Maintenance of a B average GPA.
430: Introduction to Film & Television Writing is required for all MFA screenwriting students and must be taken in the Fall Quarter of the student’s first year. Students must take a minimum of two graduate-level Cinema and Media Studies courses.
Students must also take FT 210 Viewing and Reading Media in the Fall Quarter of their first year, which fulfils the first of two graduate-level Cinema and Media Studies (CMS) courses requirements.
Please see list below for approved course numbers and titles, and please note that not all courses are offered every quarter. Students should consult the Registrar’s schedule for available courses and class times. For courses in the 298 series, students should consult the graduate advisor first to check whether a course fulfills the CMS requirement.

PhD Application Feedback Program Aims to Increase Diversity in CS Graduate Programs
Now in its third year, the Northwestern Computer Science PhD Application Feedback Program , led by Northwestern Engineering’s Fabian E. Bustamante , aims to assist prospective students with their applications to computer science PhD programs at colleges and universities in the US.
The program is not limited to prospective PhD students applying to Northwestern.
Bustamante is a professor of computer science and codirector of CS graduate admissions at the McCormick School of Engineering.
Prospective PhD students are encouraged to apply for the feedback program by November 1 at 11:59 p.m. CT via this form . Capacity is limited.
The deadline for applicants to the Northwestern CS PhD program is December 1, 2023 , for enrollment in Fall 2024. Application deadlines vary across colleges and universities, so applicants to other programs will want to confirm admissions details at each institution of interest.
During the application review process, an advanced PhD student, postdoctoral fellow, or faculty member provides one round of feedback on the applicant's resume and statement of purpose. The reviewer may also arrange for a brief, 15- to 30-minute virtual meeting to offer additional guidance. Participation in the PhD Application Feedback Program does not guarantee admission to any program.
“I am delighted that my colleague Fabian Bustamante pioneered the launch of this program,” said Samir Khuller , Peter and Adrienne Barris Chair of Computer Science at Northwestern Engineering. “We want to help students who are bright but cannot get the help they need from their own colleges — or students who graduated and are now working on their PhD application.”

Juilliard’s Top-Tier Graduate Acting Program Is Going Tuition-Free
Starting with the next academic year, the drama school will eliminate an “unrealistic burden” for graduate acting students.
By Michael Paulson
The Juilliard School, one of the world’s most elite conservatories, is making its top-notch graduate acting program tuition-free.
School officials said they hoped that the move would make the drama division accessible to a broader array of students, and that it would make it easier for graduates to pursue careers in the arts because they will have less debt.
“There’s a mythology around a place with a name like Juilliard, and I know too many people who didn’t apply because they thought, ‘I couldn’t afford it,’” said Damian Woetzel, the school’s president. “We recognize that talent is so much greater than opportunity.”
Juilliard’s drama division, in which undergraduate and graduate acting students train together, was (once again) declared the best in the nation by The Hollywood Reporter earlier this year. The school’s alumni have included Robin Williams, Jessica Chastain, Adam Driver and Viola Davis.
The acting program’s Master of Fine Arts track, established in 2012, is relatively new; previously, postgraduate acting students received a credential called simply a diploma. The master’s degree program, which currently has 35 students, is a four-year program — one year longer than most — and the fourth year has always been tuition-free to keep Juilliard competitive with three-year programs elsewhere.
Juilliard’s tuition, for both undergraduates and graduates, is $53,300 per year. About 90 percent of undergraduate students receive some financial aid.
“The expense of being educated these days is an unrealistic burden, particularly for young artists,” the actress Laura Linney, who is a Juilliard alumna and the vice chairwoman of the school’s board of trustees, said in an interview. “Members of my class were paying debt into their 40s. That doesn’t encourage young people to go into the arts.”
Tuition for all graduate acting students will be free starting with the next academic year. To eliminate tuition, the school said it had raised $15 million, with key gifts from the commercial theater producers Stephanie P. McClelland and John Gore.
McClelland, a Juilliard trustee, has been credited as a producer on 87 Broadway shows over the last two decades; she donated with her husband, Carter McClelland, a longtime Wall Street executive. Gore is a British producer whose many ventures include the touring behemoth Broadway Across America and the website Broadway.com. Other gifts, and existing scholarship funds, were combined to permanently replace tuition revenue.
“Many of our M.F.A. students come in with significant undergraduate debt, and some have maxed out the federal loans they can take,” said Evan Yionoulis, the dean of Juilliard’s drama division. This will “allow them to be here without that financial weight on their shoulders, and allow them the freedom, when they graduate, to make choices to build their craft and to have the patience it takes to build their career.”
Juilliard’s move comes two years after Yale University made its drama school, which is also top-ranked and is larger than Juilliard’s, tuition-free with a $150 million gift from David Geffen. James Bundy, the dean of what is now called the David Geffen School of Drama, said the waiving of tuition had already had a significant impact at Yale.
“We’ve seen a rise in applications — we’ve had the two highest years in the school’s history, which tells me that a great many more people saw the school as financially accessible,” Bundy said. “We’ve had a substantial increase in the portion of the applicant pool that identified as Black, Indigenous, or people of color. And taking tuition out of the equation has enabled us to increase stipends for living expenses for students with need, which has the long-term impact of driving down indebtedness.”
Juilliard already has several other tuition-free programs, including the drama division’s two-year playwriting program, which currently has eight students, as well as several specialized music programs. Once the graduate acting program goes tuition-free, 26 percent of all Juilliard students will pay no tuition to attend.
But many music and dance students, as well as drama undergraduates, will continue to have some tuition obligations; the graduate acting program is going tuition-free now because there were donors who stepped forward to make that possible.
“My aim is to make the school tuition-free — the ultimate artistic education deserves that access,” Woetzel said. “Wouldn’t that be something?”
Michael Paulson is the theater reporter. He previously covered religion, and was part of the Boston Globe team whose coverage of clergy sexual abuse in the Catholic Church won the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. More about Michael Paulson

31 Officers Graduate from TEAM School Liaison Program
September 29, 2023
Michigan students will again benefit from the addition of 31 law enforcement officers recently trained in the Teaching, Educating, and Mentoring (TEAM) School Liaison Program. The Michigan State Police (MSP), Grants and Community Services Division hosted the four-day training, which concluded Thursday, September 28, 2023.
TEAM is a school-based, law-related curriculum that is taught to grades K-12 by TEAM-trained police officers with the goal of uniting educators, students, and law enforcement officers to better equip children to protect themselves from crime. During the 40-hour training course, officers receive instruction in student/juvenile psychology, classroom management, and public speaking.
In addition to traditional topics like personal safety, how to dial 911, the law and you, and dating violence, the TEAM curriculum has been updated to address the topic of school safety and security including facility assessments, bullying and harassment, cyber-crime, social media use, illicit drugs, and vaping.
This class included three officers from the MSP, 15 from county sheriffs’ offices, and 13 from township/city police departments:
Barry County Sheriff’s Department Battle Creek Police Department Birch Run Village Police Department Cadillac Police Department Charlotte City Police Department Crawford County Sheriff’s Office Fenton Police Department Flint City Police Department Holland Department of Public Safety Ingham County Sheriff’s Office Kalkaska County Sheriff’s Office Kalamazoo City Police Department Kent County Sheriff’s Office Menominee Police Department MSP Headquarters MSP Manistique Outpost Monroe County Sheriff’s Office Montmorency County Sheriff’s Department Oakland County Sheriff’s Office Osceola County Sheriff’s Office Otsego Police Department Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office Pentwater Police Department Springport Township Police Department St. Joseph County Sheriff’s Office Tecumseh Police Department
TEAM allows officers to teach at any of the three levels of education - elementary, middle, or high school - public or private - aligning with the Michigan Model for Health. The curriculum has been implemented in over 250 Michigan school districts.

2023-2024 Microbiology Graduate Program Seminar Series: Dr. Schoggins
University of Texas Southwestern
Results (0 Entries)
At RISD we offer two graduate degrees in Jewelry + Metalsmithing—a two-year MFA and a one-year post-baccalaureate degree. These programs cultivate individual excellence by emphasizing rigorous research, material experimentation and creative practice.
Our two-year MFA program cultivates individual excellence by emphasizing rigorous research, material experimentation and creative practice. In it you produce meaningful work by questioning and investigating the forces that motivate you and by engaging in critical discourse with our creative community—both within and beyond the department.
As an important supplement to studio classes, graduate seminars address issues of the field, along with broader concerns in contemporary art. Structured around readings, presentations and field trips, the resulting discourse creates a bridge between theoretical concerns and hands-on making.

MFA learning outcomes
Graduates are prepared to:
- be conversant with research precedents and conditions to establish premises for original work.
- articulate and defend the positioning of original work in light of historical, theoretical and conceptual influences.
- understand the distinctions between and benefits of visual and verbal modes of communication in studio practice by both creating and describing original work.
- situate one's work in contemporary contexts and advance the broader conversation in the field.
In the final semester, degree candidates focus on creating a comprehensive body of work under the guidance of a thesis committee. All MFA candidates produce a written thesis and participate in an annual graduate thesis exhibition of work by students graduating from RISD's advanced degree programs.
The one-year post-baccalaureate program provides individualized instruction in jewelry making and metalsmithing. Essentially a one-year tutorial, it meets you at your experience level in the technical, conceptual and theoretical concerns of the discipline.
Following a portfolio review, you take courses across the full range of undergraduate and graduate studios and seminars in J+M, according to your specific needs and interests. With full access to and use of the department’s studio spaces and facilities, studeyouts gain valuable knowledge and experience either in preparation for graduate study or in support of professional studio practice. (See below for a sample curriculum.)

With its small size and high ratio of faculty to students, J+M offers focused, individual attention to about a dozen graduate students as they define their methodologies, delve into research areas of their own choosing and explore the intersections between art, craft and design. Graduate students inspire each other and also benefit from the wide range of visiting artists, critics and practicing professionals from around the world who come to campus to offer critical input.
Both graduate and undergraduate students (approximately 30) work with high-end equipment in the department's specialized facilities. In addition, you are assigned a workbench with a torch, ventilation and storage. While you do much of your work individually, you also engage in dialogue with and receive feedback from faculty and peers.
By taking risks you advance your creative practice and locate your work within a larger contemporary context. In short, you learn to open up new, uncharted territory in the field and demonstrate a high level of technical fluency.
Submit your RISD application form, and all other credentials, through the RISD Applicant Portal . The application fee is $60.
Initially, you must provide unofficial transcripts of all undergraduate and/or graduate study indicating satisfactory completion, or evidence of anticipated completion, of an undergraduate degree program from an accredited college or university. You can upload your unofficial transcripts within the RISD Applicant Portal. If your academic credentials are prepared in a language other than English, they must be translated into English by an approved translator before submitting. Enrolling students will later be required to submit official transcripts.
Graduate applicants to studio programs are required to submit 10–20 examples of visual work, with certain programs suggesting more specific ideas or portfolio requirements.
Use SlideRoom to submit your graduate portfolio here .
Specific program instructions:
Digital + Media: Your portfolio should contain 10 samples total, which can be a combination of media (e.g., images, video, sound). You may submit up to five videos as project documentation or excerpts of time-based media. In your portfolio you are encouraged to submit at least one video that clearly demonstrates your research and/or work process. Total runtime for all videos should be no more than five minutes.
Please do not submit multi-page PDF files. Each sample should be accompanied by text identifying the medium and year, and a four-sentence description explaining the concepts that inform your work (50 words maximum). If collaborative projects are presented, you must clearly identify your individual contribution.
Furniture Design: In the MFA programs, students often make their own work as a means to understand complex ideas. The idea is that critical making combined with critical thinking leads to innovative objects. This experimental approach applies to tests and models as well as to full-size objects at human scale. Material experimentation includes traditional, new and hybrid materials as appropriate to individual student interest. Choose your strongest work for your portfolio presentation—and it doesn't necessarily have to be furniture. If possible, you should aim to show finished photographed work and minimize the number of process images you include.
In addition to your portfolio materials uploaded to SlideRoom, we ask you to include a self-made video (no more than 20 seconds duration) of you making something. The committee is not looking for video with professional production values, but rather is interested in seeing you making something: small, large, modest or complex, any making action can work—the choice is yours. This option shows the committee more about your interests. Please title your video.
Jewelry + Metalsmithing (J+M): J+M prefers that you upload each page of your portfolio as a high-resolution .jpg file. Your portfolio should be 10–15 pages that illustrate your technical skills, material knowledge and conceptual interests. Images of work worn on or interacting with a body are highly encouraged.
Please include detail images when relevant. If you would like to include images of your design development process (drawings, renderings, models and technical process), please limit this to a single page. Do not put more than three images on any single page of the portfolio.
In describing images included in your portfolio, please include title, materials and dimensions of the work. You can add other important contextual information when uploading your files in Slideroom.
Landscape Architecture: All applicants to the Master's of Landscape Architecture degree programs are required to submit a portfolio and an additional video essay . Your portfolio should contain 10 individually produced and carefully chosen images of work that reflects your interests in landscape and the discipline of landscape architecture. Applicants to the MLA-1 program who have no prior design training may include photographs, sketches or written work that conveys their ability to observe, identify and explore spatial conditions within the landscape. All other applicants should include a selection of work that best represents the development of their interest in this field of study. All work should be labeled to indicate if it is academic, professional or personal. If team projects are presented, your individual contribution must be clearly identified. The portfolio should include a minimal amount of text.
Prepare a short video of yourself telling us:
- The most important reason you are motivated to study landscape architecture
- At least one goal you hope to achieve in your graduate education
- Why you think RISD is the best place to achieve your goals
You are encouraged to be authentic and heartfelt in your response. This essay will function as the beginning of a conversation you will continue to have if you enter the program at RISD and it does not have to be the same information provided in your written essay. Cell phone videos are accepted as well. Maximum length: 2 minutes.
Master of Arts in Teaching: Your portfolio should consist of 20 images exhibiting the depth and breadth of your studio experience. Ten images should represent work that reflects your investigations within a single medium; seven images should represent your confidence in handling a variety of media; and three images need to be samples of drawings.
Master of Arts in Art + Design Education: Submit a portfolio of 20 images that most clearly represent your creative practice as an artist or designer.

Letters of recommendation
Applicants are required to submit three letters of recommendation. Recommendation letters should be written by teachers or other professionals who have firsthand knowledge of your art or academic achievements and can comment on your potential for graduate study. You may invite your recommenders to upload their letters through your Applicant Portal. If your recommenders are unable to submit using this method, their letters may be emailed to [email protected] or mailed to the Graduate Admissions Office.
English language proficiency test
All applicants who speak English as a second language, including US citizens, must submit results from any one of these three options: TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS (International English Language Testing System) or Duolingo (an online English test). Since proficiency in English is a prerequisite for acceptance, applicants must attain an acceptable score on their chosen test; RISD requires a minimum result of 93 on the TOEFL or a 6.5 on the IELTS.
Duolingo is changing its scoring system beginning with tests completed on July 15, 2019 and beyond. If you took this test prior to the change, we require a minimum result of 63. Applicants who completed the Duolingo test on or after July 15, 2019 must achieve a minimum score of 115, which is the equivalent of 63 in their prior scoring system.
Plan to take the TOEFL or IELTS well in advance of the application deadline since it may take three weeks for your scores to be sent to RISD by the test agency. Duolingo test results may take up to four days to be received by RISD.
The language test requirement may be waived for applicants who have studied in an institution where English is the language of instruction. You must contact the Admissions Office to explain your school history and determine if you are eligible.
Graduate Record Exam (GRE)
Results from the Graduate Record Examination are not required as part of the application process.
