The program’s focus is studio work, with emphasis on critical thinking about the creative process and the role of the artist in the world. Students attend graduate seminars each semester on various topics, including the present and historical functions of art criticism and theory, contemporary art history and the professional practice available to MFA graduates. To enrich their academic experience, students are encouraged to apprentice in area galleries, schools and museums. Colloquia are offered at scheduled intervals, as are feature presentations and discussions by speakers, faculty and other members of the art department.Weekly group critiques of individual work help students develop deeper self-knowledge, critical thinking abilities, more precise visual language and clarity of expression.The art faculty encourages interaction between graduate and undergraduate students. Graduate students often assist in undergraduate classes, working closely with senior faculty. Qualified graduates can be teachers of record their third year.
