Sculpture, Master

  • Application Deadline
  • 24 months
    Duration
University rank #98 (QS) , MA,
Students in the graduate painting and sculpture departments undertake a full-time, 60-credit program designed to enhance their development as professional artists.

About

Students are encouraged to develop individuality of vision and expression, and to adhere to a strong tradition of the pursuit of excellence in fine arts. Interacting with fellow students, a distinguished faculty, and many visiting artists further enriches the educational experience. One evening each week is dedicated to informal discussions with other professionals—including artists, musicians, scientists, philosophers, poets, and historians—from the Boston community.

Sculptors and painters share seminars and group critiques and all students are required to take liberal arts and studio electives. The close proximity and accessibility of individual studio spaces creates a setting in which students share ideas, techniques, and processes. Each student also determines and develops a body of work that is presented in a master’s thesis exhibition.
