|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on February 10, 2023 at 9:00 am

A message to all prospective students who have been accepted to our graduate program:

Please plan on joining the Department of Art History for our annual Prospective Grad Student Welcome Event! This year’s event will be a mixture of in-person events, and hybrid events with opportunities for admitted applicants to participate via Zoom with those students who are attending the event in-person. Specific details about our Welcome Event will be sent out to all admitted students soon after they have been notified of their acceptance, but, for planning purposes, please note the following details as we would love for you to set aside some time to join us in-person or virtually.

For prospective students submitting applications to be considered for admission during the Fall 2023 academic year, our Welcome Event will be held on Friday, February 10th, 2023. We are also planning on hosting a Welcome Reception on the evening of Thursday, February 9th for which we are still working out the details. For planning purposes, the typical schedule for the Welcome Reception, which will be held on Thursday, February 9th, usually begins ~ 5:00 PM CST (and lasts a couple of hours) and the full schedule of events on Friday (Feb. 10th) will have our day starting around 9:00 AM CST and concluding ~ 6:30 or 7:00 PM CST with breaks scattered throughout the day. Some things to look forward to:

· Opportunities to meet one-on-one with prospective faculty advisors.

· An introduction to some unique campus resources, such as the Chazen Museum of Art, Kohler Art Library, and the Art History Graduate Student Lounge — all of which are conveniently located in the same building as our department! (A perk students enjoy when cooler weather sets in.)

· A program overview with the Director of Graduate Studies and Graduate Program Coordinator and an opportunity to ask questions about the program.

· Lightning Round Talks by current graduate students where you will have an opportunity to learn about some of the research topics students in our program are working on.

· There will also be time to meet current graduate students working in a variety of disciplines. You will have the opportunity to chat with current graduate students about the program and learn more about what the graduate student experience might look like if you choose to join us here at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

*If you have any questions about the admissions process, the Art History program, or the Prospective Grad Student Welcome Event please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Graduate Program Coordinator: Teddy Kaul, ejkaul@wisc.edu, 608–263–2373.
