Master of Fine Arts Program


Masters of Fine Arts Program

Held at New Hampshire Institute of Arts Sharon Art's campus in Sharon and Peterborough NH — The goal of the Masters of Fine Arts in Visual Arts, Photography, Creative Writing and Writing for Stage and Screen is to cultivate artists who understand, engage and evolve the professional field in which they are interested. Each student will graduate from NHIA’s MFA program with: a comprehensive awareness of the world of art; an understanding of their role in that world; life-long conceptual, creative, professional and intellectual artistic goals; and to identify the support mechanisms, skills, and expertise to complete and exceed these goals.
