Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy, offers MFA courses in Studio Art (Painting or Drawing), Photography, and an MA in Art History, to students seeking immersion in the culture and art of Europe.

SACI’s MFAs in Studio Art and Photography are two-year, US-accredited degree programs. Studio courses offer time to develop individual practices and to explore diverse approaches, methods and technologies. Opportunities are given to develop personal directions and interests with chosen instructors and external professionals.

  • Academic classes engage in the most important historical and contemporary critical debates.
  • Studio visits with Italian and international artists place students directly into contact with the issues and practices of art.
  • Field trips (to Berlin, London, Paris, etc.) are fundamental occasions to get inside the development and production of exhibitions.

In SACI’s MA in Art History, students enroll for one academic year from September through July, and earn 36 credits. They travel to art historically important sites and major museums throughout Italy and Europe, study historiography and research methodology in special Graduate Seminars, and focus on a broad range of art historical topics.

SACI also offers Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Programs in Studio Art and Conservation, and fall, spring, and summer courses for undergraduates and graduates.

The application and scholarship deadline for MFA and MA Programs is March 15.
