The University of Florida (UF) offers a three-year, full-tuition, stipend-funded MFA degree. Accepted graduate students receive health insurance, research and teaching assistantships, and studios with 24/7 access at the #6 public R-1 university (US News & World Report).
The internationally diverse student body at UF’s School of Art + Art History (SA+AH) works within and across disciplines in state-of-the-art facilities, with studies in painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, performance, installation, ceramics, video, animation, and interactive electronics. Students have the opportunity to engage in transdisciplinary research in a broad range of topics and practices, including critical theory, race/gender studies, social and environmental justice, postcolonialism, and emerging technologies. Art History is a strong component of the MFA curriculum, with courses in Western, Asian, African, and Latin American art offered by a faculty of world-renowned scholars.
The SA+AH is home to the University Galleries, which hosts an international exhibition program; and UF is home to the Harn Museum of Art. Travel to Miami’s Art Basel and visits to museums and private collections across the nation supplement the curriculum. The School also maintains a robust visiting artist program. Notable artists include Mark Dion, La Toya Ruby Frazier, Adela Goldbard, Dan Graham, Edgar Heap of Birds, Saki Mafundikwa, Kerry James Marshall, Mary Mattingly, Pepón Osorio, Walid Raad, Dread Scott, Michael Rakowitz, Martha Rosler, and Fred Wilson.
