The Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Visual Art Program is ideal for those with substantial experience in making art and a working knowledge of art history and visual culture, who are seeking contemporary discourse, community, and to elevate their artistic practice through a realistic model of education. The program encourages an interdisciplinary approach to studio practices, helping emerging artists to integrate contemporary cultural theory with the practical concerns of their own media, method, and place in the world. Graduates will demonstrate an investment in an aesthetic and/or conceptual strategy or strategies for art-making; substantive knowledge of visual culture and an understanding of research methodology; and the capacity to make critical judgments about their own artistic practice and other contemporary art in relationship to visual culture and the social context.
