Opportunities to Visit

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to host an in-person visitor day at this time. But you can plan your virtual visit to the School of Design to meet members of our community and talk to current students. A virtual visit serves as an excellent opportunity for you to experience life in the School of Design, which can help you determine whether the program is a good fit for your academic and career goals.

While we love visitors, we do not encourage drop-in visits—even for regularly scheduled tours and sessions. Our staff and faculty maintain very full calendars. Therefore it's far more likely that we can answer your questions fully if you email us well in advance of your visit so that we can set and confirm plans. 


We host virtual visitor days for prospective graduate students two times each year. These dates are scheduled according to the best opportunities for you to learn about the work taking place here, and to interact with our core faculty and current students. 

Each Visitors' Day is designed to shed light on a typical day in the life of a master's student. This year, due to COVID-19 restrictions,  our Visitors’ Day will include a zoom welcome session, virtual visits to graduate seminar and studio courses, and Q & A lunchtime conversations with current graduate students in zoom breakout rooms.

Note, there is still time to register for the Friday, March 26th Virtual Visitors' Day.
