About the MFA-IVC program
The Sam Fox School’s MFA in Illustration & Visual Culture program combines studio practice in illustration with curatorial training in visual and material culture. This two-year, fully residential program is ideal for illustrators, designers, and those interested in working with popular visual matter of the modern period. Graduates will be prepared to work as author-artists of graphic novels and picture books, professors of illustration, critical writers on popular culture, and curatorial staff in museums, libraries, and auction houses.

The MFA-IVC program builds on the vast visual culture resources of Washington University, including the D.B. Dowd Modern Graphic History Library, a preeminent site for studying the history and culture of American illustration.
