Program Description:

The Master of Arts in Fine Arts allows for a concentration in Studio or Art History. Areas of specialization in Studio are: painting, sculpture, photography, cinematography, drawing, ceramics, printmaking, fiber arts and jewelry. Areas of specialization in art history are: Medieval, Northern Renaissance, Italian Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-classical, Nineteenth Century and Twentieth Century.

The Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art addresses the needs of students who are preparing themselves for careers as artists in the contemporary art world. The Department has designed a flexible program that allows students to work in any MFA studio in any given semester providing that it relates to the student's ongoing project. This gives the student greater access to a diversified faculty. Our program will also include interdisciplinary courses that allow the students and the faculty to introduce concepts that are not rooted in a specific discipline. The focus in all studio courses is working with a particular faculty member/artist.
