The small class size of the program allows a great deal of one-on-one time with the faculty and extensive dialogue with other students. The focus in writing is on the essay as form, as well as on shorter forms of review, through our criticism blog Degree Critical and three intensive writing practicums.

An underlying principle of this program from its inception has been that the image should begin to occupy a place in the understanding of life comparable to that occupied by the humanities and sciences. To that end, we spend a good deal of time studying the history of images and how they currently operate in the world.

We are now accepting applications for the fall term on a rolling basis until all positions are filled. The Chair will be available through the summer to meet with interested candidates to discuss the program and its philosophy.

To download an application, go to, or contact [email protected], (212) 592-2408 to arrange an interview or receive further information.
