The MA and MFA programs of the Hallie Ford School of Graduate Studies at Pacific Northwest College of Art (PNCA) support the development of experimental, interdisciplinary, and collaborative creative practices through experiential learning, student-centered seminars, and one-on-one mentorship. Graduate study is individualized and self-directed, yet highly collaborative, and supported by a broad network of peers, faculty, visiting artists, writers, and scholars, as well as community partners. We are located in Portland, Oregon — an ideal environment for a creative education. In addition to its progressive values and entrepreneurial spirit, Portland is an urban center surrounded by natural beauty.
