The graduate experience

Based in deep disciplinary immersion and creative exploration, graduate study at RISD brings together students who conduct cutting-edge research, constantly ask questions and develop rewarding, hands-on relationships with materials. Extending beyond the studio and classroom, every facet of the experience helps cultivate a community of artists and designers fully committed to learning how to articulate strong concepts through close attention to process and the infinite details of creative practice.
