In response to Dorothy Pierce's message below about higher education
programs in art, three publications that I am aware of which may be
helpful are:

Peterson's Professional Degree Programs in the Visual and Performing
Arts (Peterson's Guides; PO Box 2123, Princeton, NJ 08543-2123).
Costs about $22.

Directory of M.A. and Ph.D. Programs in Art and Art History (College Art
Association, 275 Seventh Avenue, New York NY 10001; 212-691-1051).
I don't remember the price.

Art Education Programs in Higher Education (National Art Education
Association, 1916 Association Drive, Reston, VA 22091;
703-860-8000)). I don't know the price on this one either. The version I
have is 1986-87 which is undoubtedly out-of-date but they may have
updated since then.

Another publication that is more about getting a job in the graphics arts
than the education programs for it but that still may be useful to you/your
students is:

Graphic Design Career Guide by James Craig (Watson-Guptill
Publications, 1515 Broadway, New York NY 10036). Costs about $20.
It includes information on college programs and recommended courses in
a general way.

I hope this helps.

As a secondary art teacher of drawing/painting (2nd - 4th year
students) I am asked advice re. universities, colleges, and art schools.
Much of my information comes from alums who are now studying at
various schools around the country.
There must be a more reliable source! If you know of such a directory
which lists strong art departments-- e.g. graphics, architecture,
illustration--please advise me.
