Graduate Programming in FCCS

Our graduate programming aims to provide sustainable intellectual and practical academic training to students who demonstrate exceptional scholarly potential.

By the nature of its disciplinary and interdisciplinary work, FCCS is dedicated to developing a globally based community that offers students an opportunity to work at the graduate level in an intimate learning environment focused on effective teaching and the integration of creativity and research.

FCCS is pleased to offer students opportunities to pursue graduate studies across disciplinary boundaries and to work with faculty members whose research achievements are reflected in their diverse approaches to creative writing, performance, and visual arts, art history and visual culture, cultural and film studies, English, French, Japanese, and Spanish. Our areas of research are Eco Cultures, Postcolonial Imaginaries, Cultural Literacies and Practices, and Media and Digital Cultures.

Graduate courses are taught by scholars who are nationally and internationally known researchers. FCCS's graduate programs build on the skills and knowledge of faculty members who provide graduate students with the opportunity to undertake critical and creative approaches to disciplinary and interdisciplinary graduate work.
