The Hunter College MFA in Studio Art is a three-year program designed to offer broad opportunities for artists to develop their work and an ongoing studio practice in an environment that encourages experimentation, production, and critical dialogue. MFA students work with Hunter’s exceptional full-time faculty both individually in tutorials and in small seminars focusing on student work and contemporary practice, as well as in classes in the theory, criticism and history of art. In addition, there is a full calendar of visiting artists, curators, critics, and historians who are invited to meet with students.

Hunter’s MFA facility at the corner of Hudson and Canal in Tribeca in Manhattan offers students and faculty exceptional access to intellectual, cultural, and creative resources. Our presence in the middle of New York’s art world is crucial to our educational goal: the development of professional artists capable of continued growth once they leave the relatively structured graduate school environment. Studio space is available for all matriculated graduate students in the building at 205 Hudson Street, and students are expected to maintain a studio and work in the building throughout their residency.  Facilities include a woodshop, a metal shop, clay studio, printmaking studio, computer lab, audio and video editing facilities, black-and-white and color photo darkrooms, a flexible performance space, and a 5000 square-foot gallery which houses the MFA thesis show each semester in addition to exhibitions curated by Hunter College faculty and students, and the gallery’s professional curatorial staff. Students have access to graduate courses in all of Hunter’s academic departments and throughout the CUNY system.
