This low-residency, 60-credit interdisciplinary MFA program is designed for experienced artists who want to pursue graduate study without disrupting their ongoing careers. The emphasis of the program is in integrating practice with theory, where students are encouraged to be independent thinkers and researchers who may focus within one specific medium or work across various media.

News and Upcoming Events

Current MFAST student Caryn Martin ('17) will show acrylic paintings from 2012-2014 in her solo exhibition, "Things Left Unsaid," at the Creative Alliance in Baltimore. In this body of work, the artist explores emotionally charged actions through the interaction of linear elements and broad areas of negative space. These works refer to landscape and an inner terrain simultaneously. The exhibition runs from December 19 through January 3, 2015.
