A unique initiative, the MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts (MFA|EDA) at Duke University couples experimental visual practice with the documentary arts in a rigorous two-year program. For more than three decades, Duke has demonstrated leadership in documentary arts, film and video, and visual studies. Drawing upon this commitment to the arts, as well as the university’s existing strengths in historical, theoretical and technological scholarship, the MFA|EDA offers a distinct learning environment that sees interdisciplinary education as a benchmark for significant innovation. More information on the program, faculty, curriculum and application guidelines is available on the MFA|EDA website. Additional inquiries may be sent to [email protected].

MFA|EDA 2014 is made possible with support from the Center for Documentary Studies; the Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies; the Program in the Arts of the Moving Image and the Office of the Vice Provost of the Arts at Duke University. Additional support is provided by The Bar, Durham; the Cassilhaus Collection; The Carrack Modern Art; the Kenan Institute for Ethics at Duke University; and SPECTRE Arts.
