The MFA in Book Arts + Printmaking at University of the Arts is one of the most established and prominent graduate programs in the country. Dedicated to educating students in the fields of book arts and printmaking, it is currently one of few programs providing a dual Master’s degree in both disciplines. This unparalleled program offers students a profound conceptual and technical experience as presented through an intense, interactive and rigorous studio environment. Highly interdisciplinary, the program encourages students to cultivate a hybrid methodology among the disciplines of printmaking, papermaking, bookbinding, and letterpress printing— exploring the three-dimensional as well as the two-dimensional and the traditional as well as the experimental.
The city of Philadelphia, vibrant in history, culture and contemporary art, is a central component and companion to the program. The education the program provides extends beyond the University, into the prominent historical institutions of Philadelphia and provides an arena for research, academic exploration and inspiration—it is a fluid classroom. Students gain valuable experience through internships at these institutions, many continue employment in the curatorial/conservation field as well as the fine art field due to these experiences. Moreover, Philadelphia also offers a vital contemporary art landscape from printmaking collectives such as Second State Press and Space 1026, to artist run spaces such as Vox Populi to the Fabric Workshop and Museum and the Print Center. The opportunities for students are vast.
