Graduate Admissions

A Transformative Experience

At Tyler School of Art and Architecture we believe in stretching boundaries, blending disciplinary practices and thinking deeply about the ability of art and design to influence change.

As a graduate student at Tyler, you’ll be challenged to critically examine—and exceed—your own expectations as a creator, collaborator and researcher in a collegial, inclusive community of intellectuals with a shared desire to generate impact.

You will be mentored by accomplished faculty widely recognized as among the best practitioners in their fields, with one-on-one support and access to first-rate equipment, expansive studio facilities and the vast resources of Temple University—a major public research institution known for its diversity, social responsibility and community engagement. Located in Philadelphia, a hub of multicultural, artistic and historical importance, Tyler students benefit from many additional opportunities beyond the studio or classroom.

Finally, Tyler’s vast network of alumni includes many of today’s most distinguished artists, designers, art historians and scholars, architects and urban planners. Tyler alumni have built a legacy of leadership and influence that endures more than 80 years after the school’s founding.
