About

The graduate program in Art (MFA) program of University of Dallas seeks to provide the self-motivated student with the tools needed to meet the demands required of the professional working artist.

Overview

Artists maintain and develop the cultural life of a society by means of their unique expression of the basic truths of existence.

Intense study, intellectual examination and historical understanding combined with the vast creative offerings in Dallas/Fort Worth prepare you for a career as a professional artist. Emerge from three years of vigorous study equipped with both the practical and the theoretical knowledge to immerse yourself in the art world and marketplace. 

Graduates from the University of Dallas are represented by galleries nationally, exhibit internationally, and teach in universities throughout the country.

Specialize in ceramics, painting, printmaking or sculpture.

Get involved in the artistic and scholarly environment of the Haggerty Art Center, with stimulation provided by independent study offerings and on-campus and Dallas/Fort Worth area exhibitions and collections, as well as visiting artists and lecturers. All of these construct the real environment needed for growth in the arts.

Contemporary art making from conception through construction and exhibition

The curriculum of the Art (MFA) program of University of Dallas pairs the study of visual art from historical, theoretical and critical perspectives with disciplined studio practice in an effort to define a clear understanding of the work and its evolution.  Students work with the entire graduate art faculty through independent studies, one-on-one critique sessions and group evaluations to diverse perspectives on his/her work. A strong commitment and dedication to the process of creating art and sound critical thinking are characteristic of our students. 

An oasis for creativity

The University of Dallas' Haggerty Art Village is located in a wooded setting isolated from the main campus buildings. The studio spaces are semi-private and are linked directly or in close proximity to well-equipped shop facilities with the 24-hour access.

The surrounding Dallas/Fort Worth art community provides vital and dynamic additions to the student's studio investigation. Institutions such as the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Kimball Art Museum, and the Amon Carter Museum and an active gallery scene all enhance the curriculum.
