Program Description

Master of Fine Arts in Fine Arts Studio

Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)

The MFA studio program offers intensive study in painting, printmaking, sculpture, new forms, and related media, leading to mastery in the fine arts field on a professional level. Students will explore advanced techniques in painting, sculpture, new forms, and non-toxic printmaking. These may be pursued singly and combined or brought together with nontraditional media to create new forms. Faculty guidance focuses on research strategies that support sequential studio production, leading to individual solutions.


Critical discussion is developed from the traditions of fine art and contemporary directions in our culture. These contemporary and historical concepts stimulate and provoke the development of an individual approach to expression. Along with engaging in critical dialogues, students progress toward the production of a body of work and a report for the master’s thesis.


Gallery r, an art gallery in downtown Rochester operated by School of Art students, helps solidify the learning experience by bringing the work of students to the greater Rochester community.

This school offers programs in:
