One of the primary reasons for Tyler’s preeminent reputation among institutions of higher education is the collective record of achievement produced by its graduates. Tyler’s philosophy emphasizes the investigation and articulation of concepts leading to a high level of personal inquiry, resulting in work that challenges and extends the traditional boundaries of the media and their accepted definitions. Tyler graduate programs are intended for students whose work has achieved strong definition and who seek continued growth and education in their discipline. Admission to the programs is highly selective.
Tyler’s internationally recognized graduate faculty brings a reputation for excellence in academic research, studio practice, and teaching with a broad range of attitudes and philosophic positions. The educational atmosphere at Tyler is characterized by a system of mentorship that encourages diversity, respect for individual direction, and a rigorous exchange of ideas and creative challenges. Tyler graduate students work closely with the faculty and contribute significantly to the life and strength of the school.
Tyler’s Exhibitions and Public Programs department provides another important educational tool. It operates one main gallery for professional and MFA thesis exhibitions and the Stella Elkins Tyler Gallery devoted to student work.
Tyler’s location in the northeast corridor is invaluable. Not only are the extensive art collections and institutions of Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington, D.C. easily accessible, but the opportunities to complement Tyler’s faculty with an extensive program of visiting artists, critics, and scholars drawn from these cultural centers are unlimited.
