SAIC's Low-Res MFA program is open to artists, writers, educators, curators, and historians. The flexibly structured curriculum supports a three-year plan of study that integrates studio work with art history, theory, philosophy, and poetry.
Three consecutive summer residencies at SAIC bring students together to create, construct, and critique work during six-week intensives structured through both studio- and classroom-based courses and symposia. Studio work builds toward a major thesis project with both exhibited and written components. Supported by faculty based at SAIC, students spend spring and fall semesters taking classes online and working remotely from a home studio, paired with a local SAIC program mentor.
The three-year program is organized into three topic-driven themes that investigate the philosophy of art.
