Transart Institute offers an international Low-Residency MFA and a practice-based PhD for working artists, teachers, and professionals. Students work wherever they live. The MFA program consists of three summer intensives for one month in Berlin and two winter intensives for one week in New York. In the four semesters between residencies, students create their own course of study realizing individual art and research projects with the support of faculty, self-chosen artist advisors, and an international critique group online and where they live.

The MFA is geared towards the development of a sustainable artistic praxis rather than training in certain media or genres, and challenges students to think conceptually and work creatively in new ways. Current students work in all genres and media based on what will best articulate their ideas. Transart students and alumni work with activism, animation, creative writing, choreography, curating, dance, cyberart, digital and new media, interventions, film, gaming, graphic design, installation, music, painting, performance, photography, robotics, sculpture, sound, text art, and video. Transart Institute is fully accredited by Plymouth University, UK. Eighty-eight percent of our students are on scholarship.

Because of the nature of the Low-Residency program, Transart students live all over the world. They are connected to a global community of artists, connections that they sustain for the rest of their lives.
