Master of Fine Arts Programs (MFA)

Art-making can be a transformative act that alters—and sometimes revolutionizes—society. Students in our interdisciplinary MFA programs develop innovative, meaningful work that challenges personal and cultural narratives.

Our programs are designed for artists and practitioners who:

  • Want individual and small group support to write a book, produce a performance, or develop a large scale project in a rigorous, supportive setting.

  • Are teachers or psychotherapists who want to develop their own practice as artists, performers, or writers, and learn the tools for bringing these practices into their professional work.

  • Are interested in creative resistance and working collaboratively with artists and communities.

  • Make work that doesn't "fit" into traditional studio or conservatory programs because you work across multiple disciplines.

  • Want to create more meaningful lives through disciplined creative and self-inquiry in a community of makers.

  • Seek an intensive program designed for working adults.

About the Program

A two-year program for working adults, the format includes weekend classes or once-weekly class days with residency periods, and an international research opportunities.

  • Choose from a specialization in Writing and Consciousness; or Creative Inquiry, Interdisciplinary Arts
