Located in Portland, the Maine College of Art offers three graduate programs: MFA in Studio Art, Master of Arts in Teaching, and the Salt Graduate Certificate in Documentary Studies.
Master of Fine Arts in Studio Art: The MFA program offers an interdisciplinary approach that encourages students to think across traditional academic boundaries, expand their art practice, and challenge their intellectual curiosity. The two-year, trimester structure emphasizes the intersection of studio production, individual research, critical analysis and curatorial experimentation. Students choose between Low and Full Residency options. The supportive learning environment is for artists who want to define and pursue a sustainable and attainable vision for their art practice.
Master of Arts in Teaching: MECA’s 10-month MAT program prepares artists to translate their unique personal qualities into creative teaching practices. Candidates learn by doing as they work in a variety of settings including schools, museums, and community-based learning centers. MAT candidates are able to complete their student teaching anywhere in the world and are employed across the U.S. and internationally.
Salt Graduate Certificate in Documentary Studies: Since 1973, the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies has taught students to become professional storytellers and documentarians. Students bring their passions, ideas, challenges, and projects to concentrate for 15-weeks on one track of study, Audio Storytelling or Visual Storytelling, and leave with a portfolio in a wide range of beautifully crafted stories.
