The Department of Art at Stony Brook University offers students the opportunity to work in a uniquely interdisciplinary environment that encourages experimentation and innovation.
The MA and PhD programs in Art History & Criticism are uniquely focused on modern and contemporary art. We offer a dynamic and individually crafted curriculum with special strengths in media, technology, and global modernisms. Our faculty are internationally renowned scholars, curators, and teachers. Students go on to careers as arts writers, curators, researchers, educators, consultants, and professionals in museums, galleries, and arts institutions.
The MFA in Studio Art provides a supportive, creative, and rigorous environment for material research and critical inquiry through the process of making art. Our MFA studios are large, private, individual spaces set in beautiful natural surroundings. Our distinguished faculty have expertise in both traditional and experimental media.
As a selective program in a large, public institution, we are able to offer graduate training with low tuition without sacrificing the resources of a major research university. Our proximity to NYC offers extensive opportunities for research, collaboration, and professional networking at world-class museums, galleries and institutions. Students are able to view work and consult archives at institutions including the Whitney Museum, the New Museum, MoMA, the NYPL, and others.
To be considered for the highest levels of funding and support, applications must be received by January 15, 2020. All other applications will be accepted until March 15, 2020. A limited number of scholarships are available to exceptional MA candidates.
