US News & World Report currently ranks the School of Art at the University of Tennessee as tied at 17th among art programs at public universities across the country. Our graduate program in Printmaking is now ranked 3rd nationally, from a total of some 200 programs. These rankings are significant, but we are especially proud of the many accomplishments of our faculty, our alumni, and our students.
