MFA Residency

MFA in Visual Arts

NHIA's Master of Fine Arts programs are centered on the individual. Elements of the program, such as mentor-selection, are based on students goals, vision, and artistic perspective.


Our two-year MFA in Visual Arts program features intensive 10-day residencies every January and June during which you will participate in presentations, workshops, seminars and critiques with a wide range of faculty and visiting artists. You will also join our Photography and Writing students and engage in interdisciplinary work across programs. Each residency has a thematic lens intended to help students reach across disciplines. Themes, which have included Food, Migration, Borders, and Fear, are featured in a single day of events known as the Concurrent Curriculum.

Between residencies, you will be assigned to a faculty advisor who will focus on your academic work and to a studio-mentor to build on the insights made during the residency.

Throughout your time in the program, you will gain an understanding of your place in the contemporary art world, develop an expansive professional network, and gain a deeper awareness of yourself as an artist, writer and citizen. Come and experience:

- Individualized mentoring with established artists;
- Interdisciplinary immersion during every residency;
- Seminars that explore the intersection of theory and practice, the role of art in social change, and strategies for creating a sustainable professional practice.
