Students may specialize in the areas of painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography and inter-media. The Studio Art MFA program offered by University of Saskatchewan is normally two years in length. Through seminars, classes, committee meetings and critiques, an environment is created which enables self-examination, change and growth. Artistic experimentation as part of the search to locate one's practice within a wider art historical and critical context is encouraged. The Master of Fine Arts Degree is offered in studio art. Candidates are required to take 18 credit units of course work in addition to a thesis exhibition and seminar. Candidates should anticipate a minimum of two years to complete the program, taking half of the required course work each year and maintaining an active studio practice throughout the program. Studio facilities are provided for first and second year participants. Candidates in the University of Saskatchewan MFA Program come from a wide variety of backgrounds and have varying degrees of experience and engagement in the wider arts community. The University of Saskatchewan does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, colour, national or ethnic origin, disability, or sex in any aspects of its operation.
