Stony Brook University, SUNY

The Department of Art at Stony Brook University offers students the opportunity to work in a uniquely interdisciplinary environment that encourages experimentation and innovation.

The MA and PhD programs in Art History & Criticism are uniquely focused on modern and contemporary art. We offer a dynamic and individually crafted curriculum with special strengths in media, technology, and global modernisms. The MFA in Studio Art provides a supportive, creative, and rigorous environment for interdisciplinary study in the visual arts. Our MFA studios are large, private, individual spaces set in beautiful natural surroundings.

As a selective program in a large, public institution, we are able to offer graduate training with low tuition without sacrificing the resources of a major research university. As a small department, we offer students the opportunity to create individualized paths of study. Due to the combined nature of our programs, we are able to offer a MA/MFA or a MFA/PhD to exceptional candidates who wish to simultaneously pursue practice and research.

Our proximity to New York City offers extensive opportunities for research, collaboration, and professional networking at world-class museums, galleries and institutions.
