Graduate programs in art education are offered in conjunction with Syracuse University’s School of Education
. They are geared to prepare matriculated students to accomplish several purposes.
In our master of fine arts (M.F.A.) degree program in ceramics, you may pursue study in pottery, sculpture, tile mosaics, or in some cases, other areas of interest. You work in new and traditional techniques with a diverse faculty of working, professional ceramists.
The fiber arts/material studies master of fine arts (M.F.A.) degree program* is concerned with the exploration of the creative, conceptual, and multi-dimensional aspects of fibers, textiles, and related materials. In addition to traditional and nontraditional fiber practices, students are encouraged to explore the intersections and connections with ideas, materials, techniques and technologies of other media.
Our master of fine arts (M.F.A.) degree program in illustration is designed for committed students with superior illustration skills and concepts who also have some professional experience in the field. You receive individual attention from a faculty of nationally recognized professionals. Their expertise is complemented by prominent visiting artists.
Metalsmithing is both an aesthetic and conceptual vehicle. Our master of fine arts (M.F.A.) degree program provides you with a supportive atmosphere of professional faculty who allow you to work traditionally yet present new perspectives on the discipline and question assumptions.
The painting program offers an intense yet rewarding experience to painters who wish to work in a variety of styles while developing their technical skills and personal ambitions. We challenge our students to consider the wider implications of their work and respond to the constantly expanding nature of the art world.
Contemporary practices in printmaking are embraced in our master of fine arts (M.F.A.) degree program. A base in the traditional methods of print media lays the groundwork for a jumping off point into experimental, digital, installation, interactive, collaborative, and innovative art practices.
Diversity and interaction are the cornerstones of our internationally recognized master of fine arts (M.F.A.) degree program in sculpture. We aim to provide a life-learning experience that promotes artistic growth among students of different aesthetics and viewpoints and encourages interdisciplinary conversations with other members of the school's thriving artistic community.
