VCU’s nationally ranked Department of Photography + Film invites dynamic emerging artists whose work challenges traditional notions of photography and film to apply for our nationally ranked M.F.A. All students are eligible for teaching assistantships, scholarships and research grants that provide financial support as well as leadership roles within the department. Applicants whose lived experiences inform world views and perspectives on minority-group status —including race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, sexuality and disability — are encouraged to apply.
The VCU Photography + Film M.F.A. program offers a truly one of a kind studio/research experience. Guided by the mentorship of a diverse and distinguished faculty of artists and scholars, our students explore traditional and modern lens-based technology and processes while immersed in a broad spectrum of contemporary art. The curriculum is adaptable to each individual, allowing students to expand traditional and contemporary genres and processes, including performance, documentary and experimental filmmaking, sculpture and multi-media installation. Each student is provided a private studio, use of state-of-the-art audio, lighting, and camera technologies, and 24/7 access to digital/analog production studios and editing labs.
In addition, the Department of Photography + Film has a widely respected visiting artist/scholar program, which fosters vibrant creative encounters that are a hallmark of our graduate curriculum and student experience.
