|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. Alumni are recognized as multidisciplinary artist-researchers working at the vanguard of their respective practices. The three-year, full-time Painting and Drawing concentration champions an intensive, studio-based approach to learning and research.
The concentration supports student work through a broad range of material and conceptual approaches to studio practices in both painting and drawing. In the past, students have experimented and extended traditional pictorial research through process-oriented installations that include time-based approaches, new media and digital technologies. The MFA Program values the importance of critical inquiry and relies heavily on intellectual exchange. Traditional and innovative approaches are discussed through lively debate surrounding art and culture. Theory and studio seminars provide an important forum for students to investigate other issues and concerns.
