The class of 2024 is a cross section of emergent creatives that has developed their own independent practice during their time at Mizzou and as they continue to work in preparing to enter the professional world where they will continue to forge connections throughout their careers. A radically diverse class, that represents a nascent cohort of powerful storytellers exploring topics such as identity, conflict, and humanity. 


Established in 2017, the MU School of Visual Studies merges four disciplines: art, art history, film studies, and digital storytelling. This dynamic program aims to graduate future generations of outstanding critical thinkers, inventive problem solvers, and makers of conscientious, well-crafted art while preparing them for professional careers in the contemporary art world.
