Graduate Programs

Photography + Media & Society (MFA)

Photography + Media & Society @ MICA is a vibrant Master of Fine Arts program where mature, self-motivated candidates for the degree explore photography and media as an interdisciplinary medium informed by the liberal and visual arts and the record of the human story.

The program offers an active think tank for socially engaged thought-leaders to produce knowledge and meaning in the public sphere through visual, material, and media culture using lens and data-based photographic, imaging, and media tools.

The curriculum content, program culture, the human and material resources of the College, and the City of Baltimore offer a rich community of experience and knowledge to build the foundation for launching a borderless, sustainable for-profit post-graduate practice within and beyond fine art at the crossroads of culture and commerce.

Featured Course

Background / Foreground

Experience the transformation of the three-dimensional world to a two-dimensional surface through the manipulation of light. Through advanced lectures, demonstrations, dark room lab time, critiques, readings, and discussions, we will also explore the influence of genre, the implications of the practice of the medium, and discern its impact on other artistic practices.
