The Master's of Fine Arts in Studio Art

General

Program Description

The Master's of Fine Arts in Studio Art is a full-time, three-year, 90 quarter-unit terminal degree (after Fall 2020 it will be a 60 semester-unit degree), with courses that embrace the multiplicity of artistic expression, augmented with graduate-level critical art theory seminars.

Students can work in any medium or range of materials and approaches they choose, and we actively encourage experimentation. High level art history and contemporary art theory classes, as well as many visiting artists, critics, curators, and other arts professionals, plus field trips and exhibition opportunities also contribute to the curriculum.

Students on our MFA in Studio Art each get a studio space, access to all of our amazing workshops and equipment, professional development classes, and training in teaching. There are also some opportunities to teach an undergraduate lower-division studio class for our MFA students.

We only admit five new students to the MFA in Studio Art each year, making the group fifteen at any one time. This allows for us to deliver maximum resources for and time with each student, making for a fulfilling and productive experience whilst on the program.
