SAIC's highly acclaimed Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Studio is a 60 credit hour program that supports creative work, inquiry, and investigation across 14 departments as part of the advanced preparation of fine arts practitioners.
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. Graduate studios for MFA students are spread across campus in clusters that allow for robust, interdisciplinary exchange.
Graduate-level courses and topical seminars support individual studio work by exposing students to the larger dialogues around the production, exhibition, and function of art and design as well as their expanded cultural production and reception. Students design a personalized curriculum by choosing from a wide variety of seminars, courses, and graduate advisors linked to numerous studio, design, and academic departments. Graduate critiques, central to the MFA experience, alternate between discipline-specific panels in the fall semester and interdisciplinary panels in the spring semester.
