The Ernest G. Welch School of Art & Design is a NASAD-accredited school of the newly-formed College of the Arts at Georgia State University. The program fosters an interdisciplinary environment offering an MA in Art History, MA in Art Education, MAT and MAEd in Art Education, and an MFA in Studio Art with concentrations in Ceramics, Drawing and Painting, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, and Textiles.
All MFAs receive full tuition waivers, 24-hour access studio space, and graduate assistantships. Students are also eligible for Welch Fellowships, which funds students for the duration of their study. Third-year MFAs are exposed to international experiences, given the opportunity to travel and exhibit through a study abroad residency.
The school offers a year-round calendar of lectures through the Artist-in-Residence and Welch Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series, providing students with access to a diverse mix of renowned artists and scholars, encouraging artistic discourse, leading studio critiques, and conducting workshops. The Welch Galleries also support the curriculum with year-round exhibitions and by providing a public venue for thesis exhibitions.
Georgia State University is located in downtown Atlanta, a diverse and vibrant, urban setting. The campus is near prestigious institutions including the High Museum of Art, Atlanta Contemporary, MOCA GA, and a rich network of commercial galleries, alternative spaces, and grassroots organizations. Alumni, faculty, and students are heavily involved in the growing art scene, having founded a number of artist-run spaces, nonprofits, and creative publications.
