What Will Happen to USC’s Art & Design MFA Program?

The last remaining student has withdrawn from the MFA program at USC’s Roski School of Art and Design. Hae Ann Kwon sent out a pointed email to the school and the media saying that she was “participating in a sham.” Her departure from the school comes a year after the previous class withdrew in protest over changes in the program. What will happen to the program long-term?
