VISUAL AND CRITICAL STUDIES
at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago
The Visual and Critical Studies program is not only concerned with the study of visual media across many different disciplines, but also the development of hybrid research practices, particularly the overlap between studio and scholarly production. The program is part of an evolving paradigm that addresses the complexity of visual and critical practices in the 21st century—it is designed for students who are committed to working, writing, and creating in an environment of interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and postdisciplinary practices.
