The Rutgers MFA program in Visual Arts at Mason Gross School of the Arts was established in 1960 as the first non-disciplinary specific fine art graduate program in the US. The program cultivates and encourages experimentation and thinking across disciplines, offering seminars on current issues and topics across painting, sculpture, photography, media, printmaking, drawing, performance, writing, art theory and criticism open to all graduate students, as well as independent studies in the form of one-on-one meetings with faculty members. Activating the full breadth of resources within a major public research university, students may enroll in courses in other departments and schools at Rutgers. The proximity to New York allows students and faculty access to the cultural offerings of the city. Providing a supportive and constructive community, the Program encourages students to experiment, expand, and deepen their ideas, developing and cultivating their artwork.
