By merging technical processes with a conceptual basis, in the Fibers program of University of Massachusetts Dartmouth you will develop personal analytical and critical skills, confidence, and the self-discipline required for accomplished artistic work. Close relationships with your advisor, student peers, and committee members support research, experimentation, and ongoing inquiry, directed toward the development of a strong sense of your own artistic vision and a sensitivity to the role of art within your culture.
The Fibers studio is a vigorous and demanding environment where faculty and students critique, discuss, and debate the issues inherent in studio work; individual meetings take place on a weekly basis and critiques occur each month.
The required studio and academic course work to earn a Master's degree in Fibers includes seminars in professional and aesthetic issues, art history, philosophy of art, and support studios. Studies culminate in a visual and written thesis.
