Intensive Arts Program
Our graduate program is interdisciplinary, hands-on, and non-commercial in spirit with a commitment to the intensive and rigorous production of creative time-based art. The Cinematic Arts program of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee has a dedicated, internationally-recognized faculty for a small and mutually supportive group of 10-14 graduate students each year. We encourage works that demonstrate a personal commitment to the art of media making, projects marked not so much by any particular style, but rather by the questions they explore. It is the goal of the program to assist each graduate student in completing a number of accomplished works rooted in a developed sense of community, culture, and self.
4-5 Teaching Assistantships are awarded each year, which include tuition remission, an annual stipend, and affordable state health coverage through the University. In addition, graduate students are offered studio space at our Kenilworth Square East building for a small annual fee.
We maintain artistic and intellectual connections within the university, including partnerships with the departments of Art & Design, Music, Dance, History, Architecture, Anthropology, English, the Center of 21st Century Studies, the Center for International Education, and the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies. Regional partners include the Milwaukee Film Festival, Wisconsin Film Festival, Milwaukee Art Museum, Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, and Chicago’s Video Data Bank.
