|Faculty:||Faculty of Fine Arts
|Field of Study:||Photography
|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 Photography concentration champions an intensive, studio-based approach to learning and research. It provides an opportunity to develop an advanced body of professional work that reflects the shifting formal and conceptual concerns of contemporary photographic practices. Students are encouraged to use new media and digital imagery, as well as time-based work, projection and installation, to produce visually and technologically-unique photographs. The MFA Program values the importance of critical inquiry and relies heavily on intellectual exchange. 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 exhibition and defense.
