The MFA Program
The MFA Program at the USC Roski School of Fine Arts is a two-year, full-time, studio-based program located in the center of Los Angeles. The program accepts eight students each fall, providing a highly rigorous and individualized experience. Its interdisciplinary nature encourages wide-ranging experimental and intellectual exploration. Students work closely with an internationally recognized faculty including Jud Fine, Sharon Lockhart, Tala Madani, Paul Sietsema, Frances Stark, A.L. Steiner, and Charlie White. Beyond the core faculty, MFA students work with an expanded community of professional artists, critics, and curators, including other members of the USC Roski faculty, who participate in the weekly lecture series, teach critical-studies courses, conduct studio visits, and serve on thesis committees. roski.usc.edu/mfa

The
MA Program, Art and Curatorial Practices in the Public Sphere
The MA program is an intensive Master’s-level course in the practice and history of art, curating and critical theory. Over two years of study, students explore cultural production, writing, and programming in a curriculum that combines seminar and practicum formats, intimate guest lectures, and cross-disciplinary opportunities within a premiere research university. Seminars are taught by curators, art historians, artists, and critics whose work with leading institutions and publications provides critical insight to students as they pursue research and manifest their second-year exhibitions and individual Master’s Theses. Students work collaboratively to conceptualize, research and organize a culminating project in Los Angeles, an exhibition with a connected publication and programming. MA faculty includes Rhea Anastas, Connie Butler, Bruce Hainley, Karen Moss, Carol Stakenas, A.L. Steiner, John Tain, Lincoln Tobier, and Noura Wedell. roski.usc.edu/ma
