The joint Master of Fine Arts degree program of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (SMFA) and Tufts University emphasizes the relationship of art and ideas within an interdisciplinary framework and culminates with a final thesis exhibition. Students create in-depth presentations of their work—including painting, performance, video, sculpture, photography and mixed media—displaying how their artistic process developed during the two-year program. The 2012–13 SMFA/Tufts thesis exhibitions take place throughout the spring and summer at galleries around Boston. Visit for artist profiles and more information.
