IX. Graduate Programs

Studio Art

The Master of Fine Arts (MFA) Program in Studio Art prepares students for careers as professional contemporary artists and art educators. The program equally supports interdisciplinary and media-specific practices. It promotes risk-taking, commitment, and critical insight as integral components of an integrated art practice. Studio visits, visiting speakers, and lively group seminars in contemporary art theory and pedagogy augment the individual development of artwork. Faculty advisors work closely with students in directing individual artwork and research projects. Students are also provided with opportunities to connect with the broader arts community. As a culminating highlight, each semester concludes with intensive formal critiques involving all graduate faculty members and fellow students, as well as specially invited critically acclaimed artists and art professionals.
