Institute for Doctoral Studies in the Visual Arts Reviews

9 reviews
The Academics at IDSVA is above average for an American Institution. The philosophical texts which the school centers it's curriculum around is a proper foundation for philosophy. However, in this changing world, it would be better to add more inclusive texts to include Asian philosophy and Post-Colonial thought.

The core curriculum is enlightening and teaches you to learn to ask the right questions. The residencies and the relationships that one builds on them is the best part of the school's program.
Well all students are offered the opportunity to do TAing in their third year of academic work. In addition TA positions are offered outside of 3rd year students and so is Post Doc positions, not many though. I think they should work on this more in regards to helping students get these internships at other institutions. As far as jobs go, this is an accredited PhD program with HIGH standards. In my experience all the students who have graduated have either gone on to teach, get better writing jobs or get positions in higher institutions. A few students have gone on to do Post Doc or residencies.
