About

SFAI’s Dual Degree MA/MFA program is designed for students whose practices cross the boundaries of art and scholarship to arrive at their own form of production.

Overview

MFA in Studio Art

  • Conceptual Qualities. Demonstrates a developed conceptual framework of the work and its relationship to historical antecedents and contemporary critical discourse (i.e., clarity of ideas).
  • Formal Qualities. Engages appropriately the materials and tools of the media used to produce the work (i.e., mastery of materials and technique, as well as how effectively the form follows the concept).
  • Presentation. Clearly articulates and presents the ideas behind the work. Produces a cohesive and accomplished visual presentation.
  • Research. Invests an appropriate level of research to develop the work, from both a conceptual and formal perspective (i.e. effectiveness of experimentation and methodology).
MA in Exhibition and Museum Studies
  • Students will demonstrate substantial knowledge of global artists, art practices, spatial relations, and exhibitions, whether surveyed (in breadth) or specifically focused (in depth) – as presented in individual courses, and as assessed by written assignments, class presentations, and projects.
  • Students will demonstrate the ability to find linkages between art and cultural theory, history, and practice across the boundaries of disciplines and periodization – as presented in individual courses, and as assessed by written assignments, class presentations, and projects.
  • Students will establish professional practices that account for the place of art within various spheres of cultural production – as presented in individual courses, and as assessed by written assignments, class presentations, and curatorial and collaborative projects.
  • Students will demonstrate a nuanced and principled understanding of the possible roles of the artist-scholar in the world, including as agents of social, political, and cultural change – as presented in individual courses, and as assessed by written assignments, class presentations, and curatorial and collaborative projects.
  • Students will develop a writing practice characterized by mastery of a diverse range of theoretical frameworks and of research methodologies, including archival work – as presented in individual courses, and as assessed by written assignments, class presentations, and the MA Intermediate and Final Reviews.
  • Students will complete and present publically an MA Thesis exhibiting a high standard of excellence in its methodological framework, relationship to historical antecedents, and making an original contribution to contemporary critical discourse – as assessed in the MA Intermediate and Final Reviews.
