MFA Program Overview

The M.F.A. program is highly selective and is presently limited to 33 participants. The professional reputation of our faculty, and the outstanding accomplishments of the students who graduate from our department contribute to an ongoing pursuit of excellence. The Graduate Program is housed in our MFA Warehouse facility that includes spacious individual graduate studios and media specific work areas.

In an effort to provide an environment that stimulates creative thinking and artistic production, the department offers numerous full faculty critiques, thesis committee reviews, and encourages positive student interaction and collaboration. Faculty assist students with their technical, conceptual and professional skills and offer strategies to strengthen their creative research, production and recognition. At the successful conclusion of sixty (60) semester hours, M.F.A. recipients mount a comprehensive exhibition of their work at the Museum of Fine Art (MOFA) in the Fine Arts Building. Faculty assist graduates long after their degree completion, providing continuous support as mentors, colleagues and peers.
