Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy, offers NASAD-accredited MFA in Studio Art (Painting or Drawing), MFA in Photography, and MA in Art History programs to students seeking immersion in the culture and art of Europe (apply by March 15). SACI also offers Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Programs in Studio Art and Conservation, and fall, spring, and summer courses for undergraduates and graduates.
In summer 2015, in addition to late spring and summer courses in Florence, SACI offers a special 4-week, 6-credit Venice Biennale Program, which features a Digital Photography course exploring both color and black-and-white digital photographic techniques and a Contemporary Art course focusing on Venice and the Biennale.
In SACI’s MA in Art History students enroll for one academic year from September through July and earn 36 credits. Students travel to art-historically important sites and major museums throughout Italy and elsewhere in Europe, study historiography and research methodology, and focus on a broad range of art history topics as well as those specific to their own research interests.
SACI’s MFAs in Studio Art and Photography are two-year US-accredited degree programs in which students are challenged with diverse activities offering them the wide spectrum of the global art scene. Studio courses offer time to develop individual practices and to explore diverse approaches, methods, and technologies. Academic classes engage in the most important historical and contemporary critical debates. Programs feature studio visits and field trips (within Italy and to Berlin, London, Paris, etc.).
