About Us

The Interdisciplinary Arts Department has a sustained commitment to excellence in graduate arts education that has shaped the development of eminent arts professionals for thirty-five years. Our three graduate degrees: the MA in Interdisciplinary Arts, MFA in Interdisciplinary Book & Paper Arts, and MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts & Media allow for permeability across the programs. In 1993, the Center for Book and Paper Arts was created within the Interdisciplinary Arts Department, with a mission of advancing research and innovation in the interdisciplinary practices of the artist’s book and hand papermaking, providing support for our graduate programs, and engaging the public through lectures, workshops, exhibitions and events. Together, we share the principle that interdisciplinarity is a defining characteristic of contemporary art practice, and a necessary prerequisite for those artists who will shape the future.
