About

 M.F.A. candidates in sculpture continue to develop and expand their knowledge and use of materials and technical skills in support of their personal aesthetic and formal goals. These goals are focused and pursued through individual contact with an advisor of the students choice and the advice of any of the studio faculty as well as non-art faculty of the university.

Overview

The College Art Association and most other professional institutions of higher education recognize the M.F.A. as the terminal degree for artists and designers. This degree has become the standard prerequisite for those who intend to teach at the college level. It is also appropriate for individuals seeking to further develop their professional careers as artists and designers. The department also awards the M.A. degree, but only to students who are not accepted to degree candidacy in the M.F.A. program.

The Department of Art, Art History, and Design offers the M.F.A. degree in studio art and design. The Master of Fine Arts degree at Notre Dame is for artists and designers with exceptional talent and strong academic skills. The program combines studio work with academic studies in art history and criticism. Students may concentrate in ceramics, graphic design, industrial design, painting, photography, printmaking, or sculpture, or in a combination of these disciplines.

Students pursue areas of interest through a system of independent study with departmental faculty and a graduate committee selected by each student. Graduate students are expected to develop a personal direction in their work that culminates in a professional exhibition of visual artwork or design.
