The Master of Arts (M.A.) and the Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) in Fine Arts emphasizes intensive personal investigation and the development of strong aesthetic and conceptual understanding. In addition to time in their own studio, graduate students have opportunities to enhance existing skills and knowledge by observing undergraduate class demonstrations and critiques. Areas of study within the program are painting, drawing, printmaking and sculpture.
The M.F.A. is the terminal degree in the studio arts and is a requirement for those who intend to teach fine arts in higher education.
