Description

Art and Design graduate students work closely in a personal studio environment, while benefiting from a highly accessible faculty. A vibrant visiting artist and lecture series provides additional influence and dialogue. Research support and graduate colloquia facilitate cultural and scholarly exploration at national and international venues.

The MFA program offers focused study in the areas of ceramics, graphic design, intermedia/photography, painting, printmaking and sculpture. The three-year MFA program challenges students to reach their highest potential as critically engaged artists. Our selective and limited enrollment ensures regular individual contact with a dedicated, diverse faculty who are committed to a sustained professional exchange with each student. Our faculty stress intense studio practice, multidisciplinary experimentation and an awareness of the ongoing cultural discourse.

A collaboratively designed curriculum is augmented by regular critiques engaging all studio majors and faculty. Media experimentation is encouraged. Students must be able to apply and communicate a diverse body of knowledge of historical, cultural, contemporary and aesthetic issues to their professional practice. Students are expected to articulate and defend their position within the context of contemporary art discourse.
