The MFA in Visual Arts at Purchase College, SUNY, is a small, selective interdisciplinary program that fosters the artistic, intellectual, and professional growth of students through independent studio work and rigorous academic studies. State-of-the-art facilities include photography, video and digital labs; wood and metal shops; and printmaking and letterpress studios. Nearby, the vast art communities in New York City play a crucial role in curricular and extracurricular activities. Students present a culminating exhibition at a New York gallery in one of the city’s thriving arts neighborhoods. The 2021 thesis show will take place at Performance Space 122 in Manhattan’s East Village.
The MFA/MA degree combines the MFA degree with an MA in Visual Art and Modern and Contemporary Art, Criticism and Theory, with the art history requirements completed in a third year of study.
As part of the State University of New York system, Purchase College is committed to a public education that combines academic excellence and affordability. Enriching their experience, students have access to the Neuberger Museum of Art, Purchase College’s campus museum and the eighth largest university museum in the country; to a renowned Performing Arts Center; and to opportunities for community engagement nation-wide.
A vibrant community of makers and thinkers
Graduate students can mentor with renowned faculty working in all areas. Additionally, students have access to a robust visiting artist and curator lecture series.
Purchase College’s position in the State University of New York system offers a significant financial advantage. Part- to full-tuition scholarships are available along with teaching stipends. Students can expect to pay significantly less than one-half the cost of attendance of equivalent private graduate programs.
