|Description:||The MFA in Studio Arts is a professional terminal degree. The MFA Program appeals to practicing artists who wish to refine personal content and forms through critical inquiry. Alumni are recognized as multidisciplinary artist-researchers working at the vanguard of their respective practices. The three-year, full-time Print Media concentration champions an intensive, studio-based approach to learning and research.
A multidisciplinary environment supports the investigation of photo-digital and print-based processes in intaglio, lithography, serigraphy, screenprint, digital print and book arts, as well as an expanding range of new media practices including computer graphics, internet art, e-publishing, animation and installation. The MFA Program values the importance of critical inquiry and relies heavily on intellectual exchange. Traditional and innovative approaches are discussed through lively debate surrounding art and culture. Theory and studio seminars provide an important forum for students to investigate thematic topics such as narrative, hypertext, databases, networks and cultural aesthetics.
