MFA in Performing Arts
Bennington invites students of dance and music to the Green Mountains of southwestern Vermont to develop their artistic vision through the College's unique Master of Fine Arts program. In a supportive and demanding environment, self-motivated candidates collaborate with accomplished faculty and other students, including undergraduates, to deepen their artistic passions and hone their technical skills. The College's outstanding facilities and wide-ranging faculty challenge students to pursue their fascinations across media and between disciplines.
Central to Bennington MFA program is the idea that MFA candidates show work throughout their time in the program. Faculty members comment on this work in its process and evaluate its ultimate product. Another key principle is that students work outside their medium and discipline by exploring other areas in one or more courses.
The MFA program is designed as a two-year, four-term program that takes place on Bennington's southwestern Vermont campus; however, students who cannot commit to four consecutive terms are encouraged to propose an alternative schedule.
