The Graduate School of Art offers the Master of Fine Arts in Visual Art, a two-year intensive program that empowers students to expand their creative and intellectual reach and to engage in the discourses that shape contemporary art. As part of a renowned research institution, emerging artists deepen their inquiry into ideas that drive their studio work and engage disciplines across campus such as social work, architecture, biology, philosophy-neuroscience-psychology, women and gender studies, performing arts, environmental studies, and art history.

The College of Art is a community of designers and artists. In our Bachelor of Fine Arts programs, you will learn to make things with many different materials; examine people, communities, and situations carefully and with empathy; communicate with diverse audiences; and create positive change in the world. Your studies will be rigorous and fun. Our courses are taught by leaders in their fields, who are working on local and global challenges.
