Master of Fine Arts
Are you hungry for more learning, more exposure, more inspiration? Maybe you're working, but wishing you were a working artist. Will an MFA help you find a vision that’s truly your own? Or make you more fluent in your style? Will it help you make a practical application of your art? Well, that’s our goal. Our program is formed around the idea that the right balance of studio activity, theoretical knowledge, industry familiarity, and art history awareness will prepare artists to succeed in the professional world. This combination produces critical thinkers and technical masters in four concentrations: drawing, painting, photography, and printmaking. Integrate classical art practices with new technology. Grasp the philosophical foundation of the arts and the issues in art history. Be prepared to teach.
