Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy, offers MFA in Studio Art (Painting or Drawing), MFA in Photography, and MA in Art History to students seeking immersion in the culture and art of Europe, in NASAD-accredited graduate programs.
SACI’s two-year MFAs in Studio Art and Photography challenge students with diverse activities, offering them a wide spectrum of the global art scene. 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 or external experts and professionals. Academic classes engage in the most important historical and contemporary critical debates; studio visits with Italian and international artists give the possibility to directly experience and have 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 elsewhere in Europe, study historiography and research methodology in special Graduate Seminars, and focus on a broad range of art history topics as well as those specific to their own research interests.
