Graduate Studies - MFA, MAT

A NOTE FROM THE GRADUATE PROGRAMS DEAN

Our low-residency Master of Fine Arts (MFA) lets you earn your graduate degree in your own terms, on your own time. You’ll be immersed in a diverse community of artists and writers, supported by hands-on faculty who take the time to know each student personally, and who actively encourage experimentation and collaboration across disciplines. Back at home, our far-reaching network of emerging and well-established artists and advisors will continue to mentor you as you push yourself and your work to new heights.

For art educators we have two graduate level options. The Master of Art in Teaching Visual Arts (MAT) is for those who hold a bachelor’s degree and want to become an art educator with a K-12 certification. If you don’t have a bachelor’s degree and want to become an art educator with a K-12 certification, our 5-year dual BFA/MAT degree is the program for you. Lastly, we offer coursework in education, both online and in face-to-face residencies.
