Photography, MFA

This Master of Fine Arts program emphasizes aesthetic and conceptual development alongside advanced photographic technique. The 2-year program, grounded in art history and theory, is invested in the critical dialogue on contemporary photography. The program supports students to develop a sophisticated body of work reinforced by an understanding of the theoretical perspectives, and the necessary tools of professional practice to accelerate their careers as working artists.

As a result of successfully completing program requirements, students should be able to:

  • develop an extensive and cohesive body of work to continue and build upon after graduation;
  • refine photogtraphic skills and techniques, as well as explore interdisciplinary time-based modes of art practice;
  • cultivate a comprehensive knowledge of the field and a profound understanding of the artists and approaches to art making they find most inspiring toward their practice;
  • acquire the critical and conceptual skils that will sustain a globally-aware professional artistic practice; and
  • clearly articulate and evaluate the core underpinnings of their research and art practice.
