The MFA in Studio Art is a two-year, 60-credit program comprised of a close-knit community of exceptional students, working with committed faculty with expertise in a wide range of mediums and approaches to art making. Students working across disciplines have their own studio spaces at CCNY in Manhattan. The first year is spent on work emphasizing experimentation and growth, and the last year focusing those experimentations into a solo thesis exhibition mounted in the Art Department’s gallery.

The Digital and Interdisciplinary Art Practice (DIAP) MFA is a research-oriented program in which students individually or collaboratively explore aspects related to digital media art including but not limited to, Narrative and Non-narrative Time-based Art, Sound Art, Digital Cultures, Interactivity, Performance, Queer media, Cyber gender, Digital Activism, Spatial Mapping and Hybrids. DIAP moves beyond the traditional studio environment to stimulate cross-disciplinary practice. DIAP students work in a large shared studio/lab with access to a multitude of equipment. Part-time option possible. Subscribe to DIAP’s mailing listfor events, updates and admission information.

The MA in Art History is a 30-credit academic program with the option to pursue concentrations in Art Museum Studies or Art Museum Education, both of which are 36 credits. The program offers an array of art history and museum-based courses specializing in global modernisms. New York’s dynamic arts culture, including its thriving contemporary art scene, are featured in the courses, and the city’s diverse museums and galleries are available for research and internships.

The MA in Art Education with or without certificationprepares students to work as reflective artist-educators who teach in multiple settings, including schools, community centers, museums, and alternative learning sites.
