The University of Oregon Department of Art is currently welcoming MFA applications for fall 2019. Online application can be found here.

Our tuition-free interdisciplinary graduate program encourages students to work across disciplines with comprehensive resources offered in areas of photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, art and technology, ceramics, fibers, jewelry and metalsmithing and sculpture. Established in the mid-1920s, our longstanding and robust three-year MFA program incorporates rigorous studio investigation, critical discourse, and conceptual development. Emphasis is placed on curriculum tailored to the needs of the individual student while encouraging exploration and risk-taking.

Approximately 30 students constitute a tight-knit community of MFA candidates. MFAs have frequent contact with professionally active faculty members, nationally and internationally recognized visiting artists, critics and curators. Working intensively in independent studios on the Eugene campus, students benefit from the context of a world-class research university situated in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest.

Financial support
All students in good standing are given free tuition through a combination of Graduate Employee Fellowship support and tuition remissions. A GE fellowship provides the opportunity to teach and results in tuition waiver, stipend and insurance coverage. Additionally, the Department of Art offers yearly competitive scholarships for all students.

About Eugene
Eugene, Oregon, is a classic college town, with a metropolitan-area population of more than 200,000. You’ll find that Eugene is small enough to bike across, but large enough to offer galleries, music venues, and great restaurants to discover. Outdoor recreation is key to the Eugene lifestyle, with rivers to run, mountains to snowboard, rocks to climb, trails to hike, and an ocean to surf, all within easy reach. Eugene is located in the center of western Oregon, about 100 miles south of Portland and halfway between the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains in the lush Willamette Valley.
