The program is designed to offer broad training for the artist in the development of critical and analytical visual thinking as it relates to their work. In this programmatic context students are encouraged to develop their own art through constant peer contact in the studios, individual work with faculty tutors, critical seminars focusing on student work, and classes in the theory, criticism and history of art. Electives in a range of studio practices are also required. In addition, many artists, curators, critics and historians are invited to meet with students.
Each candidate for the MFA must select one field of concentration in studio art: painting, sculpture, printmaking/drawing/works on paper, photography, clay & casting, or combined media, and present an MFA project in that area.
Candidates must complete 48 credits, distributed as follows:
All students are provided individual work spaces in the MFA Studio Building and are required to work in them throughout their residency. There are four floors (approximately 10,000 sq. ft. each) for student studios, seminar rooms, and workshop and exhibition areas. The regular curriculum will be supplemented by a monthly lecture series, providing a forum for the presentation of aesthetic ideas by artists, critics, historians, and resident faculty.
