Degree: Masters Degrees
The Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of
Georgia offers graduate study in art education, art
history, and eight studio disciplines. The programs,
leading to the M.A., M.A.Ed., M.F.A., Ed.S., Ed.D.,
and Ph.D. degrees are described in detail in the Graduate Handbook.
Graduate programs necessarily presume certain
aptitudes on the part of applicants, based on
documented results of previous study. Admission to
graduate programs is very competitive. Successful
applicants are mature, highly motivated individuals
capable of sustained studio work or scholarly pursuit
at an advanced level. Working under the guidance
of a faculty of experienced, recognized professionals,
students are encouraged to develop the self-discipline
essential to productive independent study and self-
realization as artists and/or scholars.
Studio programs are structured to foster stylistic
diversity through individual exploration. There is
no dominating opinion or aesthetic espoused by the
Lamar Dodd School of Art. The wide variety of images
and approaches present at the school attest to the
healthy ferment of ideas among students and faculty.
Scholarly publications in art education and art history
reflect the same freedom of inquiry.
