The Visual Studies program welcomes students with diverse research interests. For this reason, the faculty has made every effort to allow you as much flexibility as possible in your studies. Your faculty advisor, the Visual Studies Graduate Coordinator (Clara Quijano), and the Director of Graduate Studies (Roberta Wue) can answer questions you might have about how best to navigate the Visual Studies PhD program. Your best strategy for succeeding in Visual Studies is to meet regularly with your Primary Advisor before you advance to candidacy and your Dissertation Chair after you have advanced.
