Info Session for Prospective Students – SVA MA Design Research

Info Session for Prospective Students

Considering grad school? Curious about scholarship funding? Compelled by our curriculum? This year, we’re waiving application fees* for Info Session attendees so there’s no reason not to attend and apply!

Register to hear from faculty and alums about how our two-semester program can help you achieve your personal and professional goals. It’s a chance to ask questions, learn, and listen in a casual setting, and a great way to make sure your (free) application rises to the top of the pile!

Tuesday, November 16
12:00–2:00 p.m. EDT
Register here!

And if you can’t attend an Info Session, we’d still love to talk to you about your plans for graduate study! Please contact us to ask questions or arrange to speak with our program chair.

*Attendees will receive an $80 application fee waiver if they apply for Fall 2022 admission. (Note: This waiver will be applied to the email address used to register for this webinar. It is important to use the same email address consistently throughout the entire application process.)
