The NYU Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Art and Media is a full-time and the first-of-its-kind program in the region. The MFA offers an individualized curriculum that is responsive to artistic, technological, economic, and societal shifts and needs. Its studio-focused integrated coursework bridges disciplinary skills and diverse bodies of knowledge. Students can expect small cohort sizes, one-on-one instruction from prominent faculty, and their own personal studio space. The program is structured to ensure that students develop advanced research skills for visual and academic investigations in contemporary art and theory.

As a leading research university with a fully integrated liberal arts and science college, NYUAD prepares students from the UAE and around the globe for the challenges and opportunities of our interconnected world. It represents a transformative shift in higher education, where intellectual and creative endeavors of academia are shaped and examined through international, multicultural perspectives. With Abu Dhabi acting as both a geographical and cultural crossroad, the MFA at NYUAD leverages this and provides a fundamentally different space within which to make art, with the intention of attracting artists from all over the globe.
