The School of Art at Syracuse University is now inviting applications for its MFA in Studio Arts degree.

The MFA brings together faculty, students, and visiting artists from across the country with students from around the world to take part in the creation and discussion of contemporary art through seminars; studio visits with visiting artists, internationally recognized faculty, and visiting fellows; group critiques; as well as the opportunity to participate in courses throughout the University.

As an art school within a research university, the emphasis of the MFA program is on experimentation in the creation of innovative modes of artistic production. Offering both a two and three year program, our new curriculum affords the opportunity to work within one of our nationally recognized areas or across disciplines, enabling artists to develop a course of study particular to their research and practice.

Artists are provided individual studio space as well as complete access to over 70,000 square feet of shared studios in digital fabrication, woodworking, metal fabrication, casting, metalsmithing, printmaking, drawing, painting, and ceramics, among others. With dedicated graduate gallery space, artists have ample space to exhibit and take part in the curation of work as well as reach beyond the campus into the community.

Bridging academic study and career, artists have the opportunity to participate in Semester Residency Programs in London, Berlin, Florence, and Los Angeles. Focused on the development and implementation of artistic and professional practices, this immersive experience provides housing and studio space, mentoring through a resident faculty, regular studio visits, and an exhibition of their work in one of these major art centers.

Graduate faculty: Sam Van Aken, Peter Beasecker, Joanna Spitzner, Kevin Larmon, Stephanie James

Recent visiting artists: Yara El-Sherbini, Edgar Arcenaux, Sean Cummins, Lisa Bulawsky, Annette Lemieux, Kodwo Eshun of Otolith, Ruby Lerner, Art Werger, Jack Damer, Adrienne Herman
