About

The MFA in Studio from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Designed Objects program is an opportunity for advanced work on objects we use to streamline, decorate, and mediate our lives. The program opens opportunities to cultivate new relationships between the designer and the consumer, the citizen and society.

Overview

SAIC’s Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Studio, Designed Objects is a 60 credit hour program designed to offer maximum flexibility in addressing your individual needs as a student. Following admission through the department, students design their two-year plan of study based on optimizing the offerings and opportunities available throughout SAIC. Students are encouraged to seek out curricular advising as needed from a variety of available sources including the graduate dean, department heads, AIADO’s graduate coordinator, and their peers. 

The MFA in Studio program from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago offers an expansive educational model in which designers engage history, critical thinking, and work across disciplines. We encourage our MFA Studio students to move beyond their home departments, working with faculty and peers in any area that supports their graduate work and research.
