Master of Fine Art in Visual Arts

This program explores both the making and theorizing of art under the auspices of a major research university and its intellectual culture and resources, and within the context of local and international art communities. The MFA degree is also the standard qualifying degree for teaching visual arts at the post secondary level. Most students are given the opportunity to teach foundation courses as Teaching Assistants, thus providing them valuable experience in visual arts instruction.

Program Component: Coursework + Major Project/Essay required

Supervision

Course-based programs may assign academic advisors to cohorts of students, but usually do not require applicants to reach out to individual professors / faculty members to seek commitment as their supervisor. Please do not contact faculty members if you are applying to this program.
