Graduate Information On and Off Campus
A variety of events and programs are available to introduce you to the learning opportunities available in RISD’s graduate programs.
On Campus Events
Our IN FOcus events offer an overview of graduate education at RISD and an up-close look at specific programs of interest.
The Dean of Graduate Studies, faculty and currently enrolled students will offer a broad view of our graduate learning community. Staff from Student Financial Services and the Admissions Office will share insights on financing graduate study and applying for admission. You’ll tour the campus and spend time with faculty and students in your program of interest.
In FOcus events will take place in the fall for those considering applying for 2016-17 enrollment. Please check this page for forthcoming schedules.
Presented by the Admissions Office, these programs provide introductions to our graduate programs, resources, community and application process. Each event also offers a guided tour of campus, with an emphasis on graduate facilities. Programs begin in the Admissions Office in the Woods-Gerry House at 62 Prospect Street. The presentation and tour typically take two hours or more.
