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 2022 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.
