The MFA in Art and Design program at the University of Louisville is accepting applications for Fall 2019 admission. This three-year MFA program offers the following features:
Intermedia and Multimedia Studies: While students may pursue a single medium in depth, we encourage students to explore and combine various media in innovative and unique ways.
Generous Financial Aid and Support: We offer financial aid for all MFA students including scholarships or assistantships, and support for national and international travel and research.
New MFA Studio Building: The program has recently relocated to a new studio facility dedicated to MFA faculty and students. A private studio space is provided for each MFA student in this well-equipped new workspace.
Rigorous Curriculum: The program is small and selective to allow students generous access to faculty and resources. Each MFA student works with a faculty mentor. Our dedicated professors provide students with individual attention, support for individual directions, and challenge students to explore new avenues of artistic discovery.
Excellent and Diverse Faculty: Students study with faculty experienced in ceramics, drawing, fibers, glass, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media, new media, installation, environmental art, and creative social practices.
Vibrant Louisville Art Scene: Students engage with the city’s vibrant art scene and interact with the wider arts community by participating in collaborations with local and regional arts and cultural institutions.
Application deadline for Fall is January 15, 2019. For more information, visit louisville.edu/apply/mfa.
