Art: MFA

The Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Art is an interdisciplinary program for students interested in developing a serious and engaged art practice. Here you'll be challenged by new methods of experimentation, gain a critical understanding of historical and contemporary contexts, and pursue an informed, independent practice, specific to your intentions and sensibilities.

Working within and across our media areas, the curriculum combines the best of both disciplinary depth and interdisciplinary thinking. Students have contact with faculty members through graduate reviews, independent mentorship, and interdisciplinary course work.
