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 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.

With a new 255,000 sq ft state of the art facility, and a location adjacent to the facilities for the performing arts and architecture, Tyler offers new opportunities for interdisciplinary research and collaboration.  Programs at Tyler include the MFA in Ceramics/Glass, Fibers, Graphic & Interactive Design, Metals/Jewelry/CAD-CAM, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture; a new Master of Architecture; a Master of Education with a major in Art; and the MA and PhD in Art History.
