Alumni testimonials

“I was given the freedom to experiment and try techniques that are considered untraditional to the medium. I was given the space to sew, make books, destroy photographs, integrate writing, and more. Teachers and peers supported me and provided feedback. Grad school was the right idea.”—Aris Slater Sandoval, MFA ’13

“The program has a unique mix of intensive group seminars and individualized meetings, as well as a variety of choice in electives. The visiting artist program is particularly valuable, providing informed outside perspectives and important connections within the greater artistic community.”—Lindsay Rogers, MFA ’13

“Words cannot express how grateful I am to have been part of this MFA program. I would never have imagined being where I am now. My eyes have been opened to so many new things.”—Nikki Segarra, MFA ’13

The Art Institute of Boston’s MFA in photography program creates a community where one can cultivate one’s identity as an artist. I have formed valuable relationships with many wonderful people who I now consider my ‘photo family.'”—Jess Somers, MFA ’13

The application deadline for Fall 2014 is March 1, 2014. The MFA in Photography program is fully accredited by both the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
