The Leo W. Jenkins Building is home to over 40 graduate students
who come from all over the nation, from Colorado to New York and from
Florida to Connecticut. The School of Art & Design is located
on the main campus of East Carolina University and is two blocks
away from downtown Greenville.
The School of Art & Design offers two professional degrees,
an MFA and MAEd degree. Major concentrations include ceramics,
illustration, metal design, painting & drawing, photography, printmaking,
sculpture, textiles and wood design. Most students earn their terminal
degree in 3 years, a time in which the students master their discipline
of choice and are given the opportunity to instruct a class as well
as participate in other assistantship duties.
Graduate students take an active part in advancing their knowledge
and expertise in their chosen media by leading and attending workshops,
their work in conferences, visiting galleries and museums around the
country, as well as exhibiting and publishing their own artwork.
