School of the Art Institute of Chicago Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Designed Objectsis 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.
