Maine College of Art is now accepting applications for the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Studio Art program.
Full Tuition Scholarship deadline is January 27, 2017. Application deadline is February 20, 2017.
Maine College of Art has two MFA pathways to choose from.
Our successful Low Residency path, noted as one of the oldest in the country, is joined recently by the Full Residency path. While the Low Residency students enjoy the flexibility of being anywhere in the world and the full residency curriculum overlap in many places, the Full Residency students also enjoy the opportunity to work on campus year round and undertake the responsibilities of being a Teaching Assistant for four terms. We have seen successful students also navigate between these two paths, increasing the flexibility of our program.
Field study with the MFA
Over the course of our two-year program the students are taken on trips to investigate various aspects of the art field at large. These trips excitingly involve studio visits, curatorial walkthroughs, lectures, and tours all geared toward the developing nature of their studio practice. In recent years we have taken excursions to New York City, Boston, Venice, and London.
Expanded Scholarship Programs
In an effort to remain competitive both nationally and internationally the college initiated a full-tuition scholarship last year. This year we are adding an international student award program to help offset potential costs for our stellar international candidates.
