MFA- Studio Art

The interdisciplinary program offers the opportunity to focus on methods that are most appropriate to the individual students. This may include traditional studio practice, digital technologies or a multi-disciplinary course of study. A critical dialogue will be developed between the graduate advisors and the students investigating the questions: What are the ideas most essential to express in the work and what are the most effective methods of expression? Through seminars and discussion, students are encouraged to consider the social, cultural and physical context of their work as central to its interpretation.

Study is possible in traditional and non-traditional studio practice, including but not limited to painting, drawing, sculpture, book arts, photography, printmaking, fibers, ceramics, installation, animation, public interventions, performance, video, other digital media or an individually tailored program of interdisciplinary study. Students are encouraged to explore a variety of media to find the most successful and efficient methods of expressing their ideas. Combinations of media are encouraged, as is collaboration with other graduate students where appropriate.
