During the MFA in Visual Arts program from Rutgers University, students can also take courses across the University. Each MFA candidate receives private studio space to work in that is available year-round, 24/7 for the duration of their study. Graduate students have numerous opportunities to mount exhibitions in the school’s 4,200 sq. ft. gallery space that is dedicated to showcasing student work.
In line with the school’s belief that graduate study in art should be accessible to students from a diverse range of backgrounds, all incoming graduate students are awarded a fellowship the equivalent of full out-of-state tuition in the first year and full in-state tuition for the second year of the program (International students continue to receive out-of-state tuition in their second year). Combined with large private studios and the resources of a major public research university, these scholarships give students the opportunity to fully focus on their work within a stimulating and supportive community of equals.
TEACHING & OPPORTUNITIES
We do not offer traditional Teaching Assistantships. Graduate students interested in gaining teaching experience can do so via a for-credit, semester-long teaching mentorship under Faculty supervision. Upon completion of the mentorship, students become qualified for teaching assignments as Part-Time Lecturers.
