MFA- Photography

The MFA in Photography program allows students to develop their aesthetic and conceptual core while working in the medium of photography. Students work with graduate advisors to develop a photographic body of work that is contemporarily relevant while challenging the genre of photography.

Photography is an ever-changing medium and therefore students are allowed to work traditional or experimental aspects of photography. The flexible studio electives allow students to work with imagery while developing technical proficiency in photography, book making, papermaking, metals or any of the studio classes offered at MCA.
