ABOUT THE PROGRAM
A Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Photography at the New Hampshire Institute of Art offers students a unique opportunity for artistic transformation and professional development. Our low-residency format enables you to earn your Master’s degree and be part of a diverse, passionate network of artists, while maintaining your other commitments and a balanced life. The regular convergence of students from all of our MFA programs, at winter and summer residencies, allows you ample opportunity to collaborate with students and faculty across disciplines. You’ll develop your craft, guided by an exceptional faculty of artists, gallery owners, collectors, curators, critics, and writers, and build a network of connections in the world of photography. On campus, you’ll have access to our unique special collection of rare photographic books, portfolios, and prints by renowned artists who have shaped the history of the field. You’ll learn to speak, think, and write powerfully and accurately about your work and the work of others, and most importantly, you'll gain an understanding of how your unique voice fits into the historic and contemporary world of photography.
