The master of fine arts (M.F.A.) degree program in studio arts emphasizes experimentation in the creation of innovative modes of artistic production.
Whether choosing to work within our nationally recognized disciplines/intensives (ceramics, drawing, jewelry and metalsmithing, painting, print media and graphic art, and sculpture) or across genres, artists can develop a course of study particular to their own self-initiated creative research.
With complete access to the faculty and studios throughout the School of Art, the M.F.A. in studio arts provides students numerous options of study, including seminars that focus on artistic practice, professional practice, and thesis development; critiques that emphasize cross-disciplinary dialogue; and a unique semester residency focused on career development. Focused on artistic practice while developing essential professional skills and abilities, the M.F.A. in studio arts prepares students to succeed in the field of contemporary art.
