Description:The MFA in Studio Arts is a professional terminal degree. The MFA Program appeals to practicing artists who wish to refine personal content and forms through critical inquiry, experimentation and innovation. Alumni are recognized as multidisciplinary artist-researchers working at the vanguard of their respective practices.

The Film Production concentration is a three year, full-time program that champions an expanded notion of cinema. It encourages media-makers to explore diverse theoretical frameworks, processes and methodologies of contemporary moving image practices. The MFA Program values the importance of critical inquiry and relies heavily on intellectual exchange. Students receive regular feedback from artist-researchers in the department and faculty. Theory and studio seminars provide an important forum for students to discuss and investigate issues and concerns. Review committees composed of faculty, studio arts graduates and invited artist-critics provide a focused response to studio work and prepare students for their concluding project and defense.
