Master of Fine Arts in Glass

The MFA is a professional degree for practicing artists, craftspeople, or designers who desire to leave a lasting impression on their fields by devotion to their work and high standards of discipline and artistic ideals. The MFA is generally a two-year, full-time program that involves the presentation of a thesis. The thesis includes written documentation and the formal exhibition of a body of work.


Admission requirements

Applicants should hold a baccalaureate degree in a field of arts, sciences, or education from a regionally accredited institution in the United States. Applicants should demonstrate, through the quality of the undergraduate record and creative production, a genuine, professional potential. (Please see section regarding nonmatriculated students.) The undergraduate degree should include 75 quarter credit hours (50 semester hours) in studio courses.


International students need a minimum score of 550 (paper-based) or 80 (Internet-based) on the Test of English as a Foreign Language. An IELTS overall band score of 6.5 will also be accepted. Those coming from countries where the baccalaureate degree is not given for programs in the practice of art may be admitted to graduate study if the diploma or certificate received approximates the standards of the BFA, BA, or BS degrees, and if their academic records and portfolios indicate an ability to meet graduate standards.


Master of Fine Arts in Glass

This two-year program is structured on the basis of individual needs, interests, and professional preparation, as may be determined through individual/group discussions. A rapid series of exploratory works is developed during the first year, with emphasis on broadening technical and aesthetic understanding. The second year’s focus will be on developing a body of work based on a sustained interest from the first year’s investigation. The final work must be supported by a written thesis, a high-quality portfolio, and an exhibition.
