Studio Environment

  • MFA students from each area of specialization are allowed 24-hour access to semi-private studio space for discipline-specific research while working together within a larger interdisciplinary community.
  • The Department of Art and Art History houses communal state-of-the-art facilities including CNC milling machines, laser cutters, and 3D fabrication capabilities accessible to all graduate students.

Community

  • Our tightly-knit community and low student-to-faculty ratio allow for continual mentorship and guidance throughout our three-year program.
  • MFA students are encouraged to take elective courses in a range of disciplines external to the Department of Art and Art History, including but not limited to: biomedical sciences, engineering, business, geology, and more. Explore fields of study for elective courses.

Teaching Experience

  • Most, if not all, MFA candidates are offered the opportunity to teach their own stand-alone classes based on their area of expertise, which provides tuition remission and a stipend.
