The MFA in Art Studio engages students in a two-year, critically rigorous studio program that provides an opportunity for interdisciplinary study in the visual arts. Students explore a wide range of media and approaches to studio practice. Drawing on the strengths of a multidisciplinary research campus, the program encourages research collaborations connecting the arts, humanities, social sciences and sciences. The program is committed to delivering an innovative educational curriculum that promotes the blending of art theory and creative practice, with a goal to prepare students for professional engagement in the arts, including but not exclusive to academic careers. We aim to advance theories, methods, tools, and knowledge in emerging areas of studio art practice.

The Art Studio MFA program offers substantial financial support through paid teaching assistant positions each quarter and through Art Studio program fellowships, made possible by generous private endowments. Students may also apply for university support through Graduate Studies Travel Awards, the Davis Humanities Institute, and the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts.
