About the Fine Arts Master’s Program

The Master of Fine Arts degree (M.F.A.) is the recognized terminal degree in the practice of art. It is offered with a major in art and requires a minimum of 60 semester hours of graduate work.

Students may pursue tracks in the areas of ceramics, jewelry design and metalsmithing, painting, photography, printmaking, or sculpture. Graduate-level courses in Drawing and Transmedia may be selected as a secondary studio and/or elective credit. Admission to the M.F.A. program normally presumes that students hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in studio art. A graduate preview committee, composed of graduate faculty members in the studio area for which the applicant is seeking admission, will examine a portfolio of the student’s work and may hold a personal interview. On the basis of these examinations, the preview committee will make recommendations concerning acceptance to the M.F.A. program and will determine and prescribe any leveling work to be completed before or after acceptance. Students applying for the Master of Fine Arts degree program do not need to submit scores for the Graduate Record Examination.
