As a department teaching both theory and practice, we provide interdisciplinary explorations of historical and conceptual frameworks using a wide range of interpretative techniques and media.

The Department houses the internationally recognized Graduate Program in Visual and Cultural Studies, offering an interdisciplinary Ph.D. degree. Students are in residence for four years during which time they take seminars, participate in conferences and colloquia, and serve as Teaching Assistants in many of the undergraduate courses. After successful completion of the Ph.D. Qualifying Exam, students pursue independent dissertation reasearch and writing. Both the Department and the Visual and Cultural Studies Program sponsor lectures, conferences, seminars, and exhibitions of interest to the University and to the wider community. The on-campus Hartnett Gallery in Wilson Commons has affiliations with both the undergraduate and graduate programs.

Many of our undergraduate alumni go on to do graduate work in order to pursue university teaching. Our Visual and Cultural Studies graduate alumni teach in prestigious colleges and universities. B.A.s, M.A.s, and Ph.D.s have become museum curators, artists, media professionals, and critics.
