Thank you for your interest in our graduate programs at Louisiana Tech University. Graduate students in the School of Design’s Master of Fine Arts program at Louisiana Tech University will work towards 60 hours in any of the three areas: Graphic Design, Photography, and Studio.


Within these areas, students are involved in various disciplines such as painting, traditional and digital photography, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media, multimedia and graphic design. 

Students in the Fine Arts program at Louisiana Tech University are asked to consider the ramifications of their work on a local, social, and universal level. Emphasis is placed on individual studio work. Because of this emphasis, each student is given a private studio. 

Most of the graduate experience revolves around this practice. Students are encouraged to explore critical and conceptual issues, especially in relation to their own work. Students participate in individual critiques, intensive group critiques, and critical seminars. The scale of our graduate program allows for one on one interaction between faculty and students.

Programme Structure

  • The qualified candidate will possess a BFA (or minimum of a BA) in their chosen field of study. Graduate admission is conducted through the School of Design and is extremely competitive.
  •  With fields of study in Graphic Design, Photography and Studio (painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking), the School of Design attracts applicants searching for an innovative interdisciplinary program. 
  • The Graduate Committee in the School of Design selects applicants based on creative work, academic record, life experiences, statement, and understanding of the program. Approximately five students are admitted each year.
